WELCOME TO LifeSTEPS.

Since 1996 LifeSTEPS has helped our most vulnerable individuals and families forge better lives. Our Mission is to provide effective educational and supportive services to maximize the strengths of individuals and build resilient communities. We do this by providing comprehensive social services to the residents of affordable housing communities. Low-income families maintain stable housing through our case management, education and emergency assistance services.

At LifeSTEPS, we are there to catch people before they fall deeper into poverty and avoid homelessness by adhering to the highest standard of service possible. Our vision is that every person touched by LifeSTEPS will be empowered with the skills, resources and support to maintain stable housing and break the cycle of poverty.

Big Day of Giving thank you
