Locked Up Should NOT Mean Locked OUT of our Society or Communities...
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Our Mission

Step By Step Reentry Project provide housing, comprehensive wrap around services, case management, advocacy, and leadership development. A holistic approach on helping women to rebuild their lives after prison and jail.
 
Our Vision

We envision a world where all formerly and currently incarcerated women of upstate South Carolina are supported and restored to a healthy path, experience whole life transformation and a permanent home.

Our Results

A track record of women achieving emotional and financial stability capable of rejoining their families. Nearly 15 years in operation, 80% job placements, 40% sober living and 20% of previously homeless women placed in permanent housing. 

Services are provided at less than a third of the cost of incarceration.
