Review for Step by Step of Rochester, Inc., Rochester, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Step by Step has touched so many ex-offenders and women at risk of imprisonment. As a result of the workshops and support received from Step by Step, these women return to the workplace, return to school and return to a positive sense of self. Step by Step has reduced the recidivism rate among participants. They work on a shoestring to help women piece their lives back together. It is a blessed community which deserves support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen ex-offenders move on to productive lives. Many of those who have gone through the program also return to Step by Step as volunteers. At least one of the women helped supervise me as I volunteered at Step by Step.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the difference it makes in women's lives in Rochester.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Talented, tireless and generous.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

They would spread the good news and help more women who are coming out of prison, as well as helping to prevent women from landing in prison.
