Empowering Families in the Community
First Step of Hope mission is to break the difficult cycle of abuse in our community and provide women and children a safe emergency environment.
First Step of Hope, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and our focus is to empower families to become more independent while providing information for transitional housing, providing life skils and training for women. Assistance will be offered to women and children that have been abused and have no where to go and may become homeless.
We will assist them as they move from dependent to self-sufficient lifestyles. Additionally, we will assists clients in child reunification. This is particularly important as most abused women in transitional housing have children but no custody.
The facility will provide clients within a multi-step program that teaches them necessary life skills. This collaborative approach to empowerment is the keystone to developing self-sufficiency for the clients.The steps include personal development, vocational training, substance abuse counseling, interpersonal skills building, community involvement, leisure activities, and independent living skills.
If you are looking for a loving caring environment who will work diligently to help you remain safe and work to get you the assistance needed to succeed into a better life, you have made the first step.
