Directly impact the lives of those experiencing mental health conditions and homelessness!

HELP STEP UP CONTINUE TO SERVE
OUR MEMBERS DURING COVID-19

Here are the top ways to help support Step Up during this time.

#1.
MAKE A DIRECT DONATION

Help Step Up by contributing to our pool of unrestricted funds. This allows the agency to be flexible and responsive to directing funds to the areas it is needed most.

#2.
FULFILL AN AMAZON WISHLIST

Support your favorite Step Up team by providing them with necessary resources for member outreach.  Because Amazon doesn’t let us know who donates, please email Carolyn to help us track and acknowledge your donation: [email protected]
