Dante’s Story
Dante’s Story

Dante was experiencing homelessness, sleeping in parks and on the sidewalk in front of Step Up on Vine. The staff reached out to him, worked with him to access detox services, and helped him locate housing. Dante started his training in Step Up’s Vocational Training janitorial program and when he expressed a love for cooking, the staff invited him to hone his cooking skills in the Step Up on Second kitchen.  

 Once in the kitchen, “God started opening doors for me and I was blessed to be training with staff and peers who helped bring out my potential,” said Dante, “and that has given me a path to a beautiful, prosperous and positive future.”  

 A year later, Dante has reconnected with his family, has permanent hours in the kitchen as a grill chef, and assists with daily meal preparation. Dante’s inspiring journey shows how Step Up assists members in reaching their self-determined goals.
