Step Ahead Program

The goal of Step Ahead is to assist families with children under the age of eighteen with supports and services. We believe that Step Aheadsupport needs to be given on an individual basis. This enables the family to be in control of their own future while assisting them to meet the needs it identifies as concerns. This is best achieved through a process which includes encouraging families to identify their strengths and needs and assisting them in concrete problem solving and resource acquisition. Through this process, we aim to empower and strengthen families as to how they can help themselves in the future and create support network. This is a voluntary program and referrals come from a variety of sources, including this Referral form. Services are free and include the following:

Home visiting

Family Aides

“The home visits bring information and assurance (that) I am doing okay. “




“The best part of the program? Just knowing that I was doing the best I could with what I had.”
