Step By Step helps low income and at-risk pregnant women, who are facing serious barriers to having a healthy pregnancy including poverty, homelessness, domestic violence, and addictions. The women we serve are at a heightened risk of having a pre-term birth or suffering from other complications during pregnancy. We help women take needed steps to improve their health and work to overcome their unique life challenges. Our primary goal is to help them have a healthy pregnancy and deliver a healthy baby at a healthy birth weight. However, our vision is that they will see their pregnancy as a catalyst for positive change, see hope for their future, build on their strengths, and work towards a place of self-sufficiency and sustainability. Services offered by our organization include professional in-home education and counseling by registered nurses, licensed counselors, and dietitians. The program is holistic in its approach and also offers community connections and events to support moms, vital and basic needs such as food and diapers, housing and homelessness prevention services, parenting and life skills classes, and assessment and assistance in connecting to other needed resources. We believe that healthy moms lead to healthy babies, which leads to healthy families and communities. We are helping to break generational cycles of poverty and abuse, and building stronger and healthier neighborhoods and communities – one mom, one baby, one healthy step at a time.
