Does Steps Together work with other nonprofits?

Steps Together no longer makes financial contributions to other nonprofit organizations.  We have in the past but now have so much demand that all funds raised go directly to families in our community.  We do support the work of other organizations whenever possible but not financially.  We even created a resource page for families which highlight organizations that could be of assistance.  Organizations detailed on this page have had a direct impact on the families we have helped.  Please note that this resource page is a constant work in progress.
