Providing safe housing, case management, supportive services and opportunities to formerly incarcerated women.


Our Mission

The Hope Project welcomes women back to our community providing safe housing and supportive case management giving women hope, encouragement and opportunities to restore their life.

Our Purpose

Step by Step Ministry Hope Project was created to provide safe housing, advocacy and supportive case management to address the unmet needs of formerly incarcerated women. The reentry program helps to ensure that formerly incarcerated women can secure government papers and access the resources of their needs, wants, and goals to help women build a solid foundation.

Our Vision

That Upstate formerly and currently incarcerated women are supported and restored on a healthy path to experience whole life transformation and a permanent home.
