As a Community Action Agency, STEP cannot make an impact without support from our community! Donors and volunteers are both tremendously important to our organization.

There are two ways you can directly support STEP's mission:

  1. Become a donor, either as a monthly donor or by making a one-time donation. Click here for more information on how to donate.

  2. If you want to jump in and help people, then you may want to consider becoming a STEP volunteer! You can complete the registration form below to get started.
