 Step Up is currently running a project through Google’s One Today giving platform. Our goal is to raise $10,000 specifically to provide vocational and educational opportunities for members of Daniel’s Places.
Step Up Board Chair Ivan Illan will generously match every dollar raised — dollar for dollar — up to $10,000! We don’t want to leave one dollar on the table; so we ask that you please give this information to 10 people in your business and personal networks.

November 11th is always Veterans Day.

At Step Up, Veterans have our attention every day. Let’s come together to end Veteran homelessness once and for all.

Your gift to the Welcome Home! Veterans Campaign ensures that Veterans experiencing chronic homelessness and mental health issues have access to  permanent supportive housing, vocational opportunities, and member-driven supportive services in 2016 and beyond.

Consider making your donation a Tribute Gift in honor of a Veteran you know.



In an unprecedented public/private partnership,  the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs issued 400 project based housing vouchers to Step Up and Shangri-La Construction to END HOMELESSNESS for Veterans in Los Angeles!
