 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.”
