Capacity Building Campaign

Applications for our services have surged, and the cost of living has risen. We are handling our highest-ever case load.
 

The time to build capacity is now. 

We are ready to help more military and Veteran families, and we invite you to join us.
 

Your donation will be matched up to $1M! 

 

Thanks to the Zable Foundation

“I came home from the dentist and cried. Not because of the pain I was in, but because I was so grateful for the help you provided me. I never would have been able to complete all the dental work needed and I am so excited to be able to eat again. Thank you for all that

you do."

"Nobody sits you down and says before you get into this massive amount of debt, here's what you need to know about budgeting... Thanks to STEP we were given the resources to be able to pay off $30,000 of debt over the past

five years."
