Step by Step’s mission is to empower families and children in Southern West Virginia to embrace self-advocacy, become leaders in their communities, and work together to achieve their dreams.
Step by Step provides service in the areas of education and the arts, wellness & sustainability, local leadership & community development. We develop programs based on the needs of the community, as expressed by the community.
Step by Step has collaborated with West Virginia schools, colleges, agencies, community education programs, and other non-profits, for nearly two decades. Throughout the year, we place over a dozen Volunteers in Service to America (VISTAs) in key organizations in Southern West Virginia. We are also the fiscal sponsor of the Big Ugly Community Center.
