Forward STEPS is a relationship-based empowerment initiative that is strategically designated to walk alongside under-resourced working individuals and families. The initiative provides tools and resources to increase their economic stability on their journey to self-sufficiency.
Forward STEPS offers interactive group workshops and trainings for employees, employers, and the community. The workshops educate the participants about the issues that surround poverty and food insecurity. These experiences can be tailored to the age, knowledge level, and number of participants, and can be held onsite or at another location. Past participants include corporate teams, teachers, college students, health professionals, volunteers, and more.
Volunteers will do a variety of activities, from youth enrichment to serving (and eating) meals with participants to helping with poverty simulations. Each experience is unique and rewarding.
