Locked Up Should NOT Mean Locked OUT of our Society or Communities...
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
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.
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.
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.
Kamala Harris VP met with Step By Step's executive director Angela Hurks regarding criminal justice reform and to better understand the challenges that Step By Step experiences to provide needed support to both the homeless and formerly incarcerated women in the upstate of South Carolina. Kamala commits on assisting reentry programs across the nation, prison reform, and homelessness that should not be treated as a crime.
News & Notes
The spooky season is coming to an end before we know it, but that doesn’t mean we’re over October. Scary doesn’t always have to be bad. Instead, use these final weeks as a reminder to do some scary-good deeds and give back to your community.
In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.
It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone. As we enter October and inch closer to the holiday season, year-end giving and volunteering also ramps up.
Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in all that we do helps us develop a more informed and inclusive picture for different causes and issues at hand.
