Step Up remains open and continues to provide services like counseling, case management, meals and showers to people experiencing homelessness and a mental health condition during this time. While we are not engaging volunteers in person due to social distancing recommendations for the month of April 2020, YOUR HELP IS STILL NEEDED! Take a look at what you can do right now:
Contact Community Engagement Coordinator Carolyn Healy at [email protected] for more details on current volunteer needs
The best way to help Step Up at this time is to contribute 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.
These items are essential to our continuing outreach and are even more vital during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are continuing to move members into housing and we need to welcome them to their new home with these items!
If you have specialized skills or knowledge to share, please consider volunteering to create a webinar or ongoing virtual class to teach mindfulness, arts and crafts, yoga, writing and more. Step Up staff and members are working to stay connected and engaged during this time and would love this support! Contact [email protected] to find out how.
You can help our members by organizing a donation drive today! We need Welcome Kits for new members and Hygiene Kits for those currently experiencing homelessness. In-kind donations of gently used clothing, non-perishable food and supermarket gift cards are always welcomed!
Have your group sponsor and coordinate a dinner or holiday party for residents! You can bring a fun social event to members at one of our locations!
We offer the option to build a service day that includes gardening or a donation drive. We include fun team building and educational activities for your office, service group, faith group or school! Come take action and learn!
Cook your favorite recipe in one of our buildings in a shared community kitchen. You can share important life skills with our members and bring a smile to everyone’s face.
Volunteer in one of our urban gardens and contribute to growing food and developing usable outdoor spaces with members and staff!
Share your professional skills by leading a project with members or staff. Contact us regarding current opportunities for event planning, horticulture, arts and crafts, interior design and more!

Dear Supporters, Volunteers and Trusted Community Partners,
We wanted to take a moment to let you know Step Up is actively monitoring the COVID-19 status in the communities we work. We are relieved to report that as of this writing, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 in the Step Up Community. Step Up is taking measures to both protect employees' health and welfare, and to advance its critical mission to serve its most at-risk members. During this time, members will continue to need our support and we expect to continue to provide the exemplary level of support and services we have become known for in our community.
In an abundance of caution, Step Up is taking the following immediate steps to curtail the spread of the virus and to keep its staff, members and volunteers as safe and as healthy as possible during this period of unknown impact:
While many public and private spaces have curtailed operations for the time being, Step Up will remain operational and will continue serving its clients. Again, it is important to note that NO ONE IN THE STEP UP COMMUNITY HAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19. Our goal is to keep it that way for as long as possible.
Please contact us by email or phone before coming to one of our locations. Support from our community is especially vital now as operations are re-aligned to adhere to our mission while keeping staff, members and volunteers safe. Please consider making a donation as we work through this difficult time. Your contributions in any amount ensure that Step Up will continue serving our most vulnerable neighbors, who are especially vulnerable during this community health crisis. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
Stay safe and healthy,Tod LipkaPresident & CEO
