Step by Step of Rochester, Inc. is a program of the Volunteers of America which intends to empower women who are, have been, or are at risk of being incarcerated to claim their strengths and build healthy lives for themselves and their families. Founded in 1992, Step by Step's staff and volunteers facilitate a variety of life history workshops for wmen in correctional facilities and agencies in Western NY and the southern tier. The workshops provide a structured environment for learning and self reflection.
By building self awareness, self image and self respect, Step by Step gives women the tools they need to rebuild their lives (and those of their families) and attain self sufficiency.
They are a non profit 501(c)3 organization established to work with women within the incarcerated setting and also throughout the community.

2020-06-08 18:22:03 I used to be apart of the step by step program & thankfully graduated 3 times. I don't know where I would be if I didn't find the lovely women who started this program. Is there any way I can volunteer any of my time to be a peer & help?? —AmberRae
