What’s going on Northern Nevada

Step 1. is having a Spaghetti dinner and Not-So-Ridiculous Raffle on March 22, 2012.  This is a fabulous event at is affordable for everyone to do!! It’s only a $10 donation.  It’s a chance to see Step 1. and help a wonderful organization.  I have been on the board for all most a year and I can tell you that this is an outstanding group of people that I have meet. This organization has been suffering, in November 2011 we were close to closing the door after the first of January but our November Spaghetti Fundraiser saved us. 

 As a board member, we are doing everything we can to keep this organization running and being successful! I truly encourage you to do something nice this next week and come to Step 1’s Spaghetti dinner.  I know there are tons of great causes out there but this one really needs our help.   It’s a small fee but it means the world to Step 1.         

 What is Step 1?

Step 1 has been serving the men of Northern Nevada since 1993. Step 1 reaches out to men who are homeless as a result of their substance/alcohol abuse, criminal and antisocial behavior, but who have a strong motivation to change their lives for the better. Men requesting transitional housing enter the program directly from a homeless shelter, state institution, an inpatient or a residential treatment facility for substance dependence.

 These gentlemen are in desperate need of housing, treatment and re-integration services; without which, they remain homeless and at increased risk for relapse to substance use and criminal activity to support themselves. The model of supportive transitional housing provided by Step 1 is unique to northern Nevada. Housing and basic needs such as food, clothing and vital services are combined with structured peer-to-peer and professional staff support creating an environment that promotes responsible, pro-social values. The philosophy of Step 1 is: “Do the next right thing.”
