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
While normally “back to school” is reserved for children, it turns out that this time of year is important for every age. That’s because you’re never too old to continue learning, and it can help you live up to your true potential in everyday life.
Just because it’s the middle of the year doesn’t mean it’s too late to set and achieve big things yet this year. While reevaluating your existing goals, throw in some hard-to-reach newer goals and set your sights high.
Life happens, and focusing on all aspects of your health is easier said than done. Take small steps in each area to start building solid habits!
Making a difference in a child’s life sounds like a daunting task, but small acts of kindness can add up and make a huge difference. Start small, like an hour spent volunteering or mentoring.
