The mission of Step by Step is to assist women who are, have been, or are at risk of becoming incarcerated to rebuild their lives and the lives of their families through strength-based programming.

The vision of Step by Step is to become the recognized program model for women who are, have been, or are at risk of becoming incarcerated.

Founded in 1992, Step by Step’s staff and volunteers facilitate a variety of life history workshops for women in correctional facilities and agencies in western NY and the southern tier. The workshops provide a structured environment for learning and self-reflection.

We assist women to understand what caused them to be incarcerated, so they can make healthier, better choices in the future. Women struggling with histories of incarceration, addiciton and poverty often are convinced they have no worth and feel isolated. By building self awareness, self image, and self respect, women find the tools they need to rebuild their lives, and those of their families, and attain self-sufficiency.
