What Will You Give?

What Will You Give?

This giving season, let’s give the gift of awareness, acceptance and hope to families all across Tennessee.

STEP believes every child matters; every child should have access to an education that leads to self-sufficiency, employment, and meaningful community involvement.

On November 29th, STEP, Inc. is asking friends, followers, and families to gather together to support our mission.  To ensure a brighter future for children and youth in Tennessee, with an emphasis on those with disabilities, special health care needs, and mental health needs.

#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back, following the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  It is about giving true meaning to the holidays. It's about giving more than material things. It's about helping others and giving back. 

When we pool our resources, we can make a tremendous impact. Every donation makes a difference and will help STEP, Inc. continue to offer the important work of EDUCATING, and SUPPORTING FAMILIES and their children and youth with disabilities all across the state.

#GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things – and we can’t do it without you.

Two members of the Board of Directors of STEP (Support and Training for Exceptional Parents) joined forces with their spouses to give STEP a High Five on #GivingTuesday!  Click here to see how they are giving this year.
