Mark & Meridee Heimlich
In March, Barry, Mark, Meridee, and some local teens helped move 4 of our client families in only 3 days! The group helped the families move out of and clean their old apartments and then helped them move into their new apartments!

We cannot express how thankful we are for Lighthouse's continuing partnership with our organization. They have volunteered their time, talents and treasures to help support our mission again and again. Thank you to every one at Lighthouse who has given of their time, talents, and treasures to make a difference in the lives of the women and families we serve!
Thanks to Hannah’s wonderful organizational skills and passion to serve, the 2011 North Christmas party was the largest and best ever!

The Bethany Bible women's group also held a diaper drive, collecting over 2,000 diapers as well as baby wipes and formula. Many of these items have already been a huge blessing to our clients.
City Gate Youth
City Gate Youth teamed up to help serve the meal and provide child activities during our recent life skills classes. They were also a huge help in running this year's Family BBQ & free yard sale for our clients. They were instrumental in making this event run smoothly.

Margaret Toop & Drama Troop
Margaret & Jim Toop, Sammie (a client), Tina Bustamante, Bob & Flo King, Dan Clabots, Kimber Toop, Vicki Carlson and Gail Danforth performed a drama – “Building Home Sweet Home,” at our October Fall Celebration. The skit, although humorous, depicted a very real look at some of the everyday challenges facing our clients.
The play emphasized and illustrated the impact Step By Step can have on the lives of women and their families as we serve to help them deliver a healthy baby, start building a safe home and learn positive parenting and life skills.

Janis, Althea, and Michael were key leaders in orchestrating our South Christmas Celebrations. It is volunteers like these that make these events possible for our clients each year.
