Forward STEPS

Forward STEPS is a relationship-based empowerment initiative that is strategically designed to walk alongside under-resourced working individuals and families. The initiative provides tools and resources to increase economic stability on the journey to self-sufficiency.

Forward STEPS offers interactive group workshops and trainings for employees, employers, and the community. The workshops educate the participants about the issues that surround poverty and food insecurity. These experiences can be tailored to the age, knowledge level, and number of participants, and can be held onsite or at another location. Past participants include corporate teams, teachers, college students, health professionals, volunteers, and more.

Schedule a workshop or training to get more information by contacting Carol Bradshaw, Forward Steps Manager at or call 765.287.8698 ext 117 or 765.730.0279
