A word from Executive Director Wil Snell

Hi! My name is Wil Snell, the Executive Director of Front Step, Inc. It is a great privilege for me to serve the communities of Philadelphia. We have grown and developed in so many ways because people, churches, donors and organizations have believed in and supported our mission and core values.


The challenges of non-profit, faith-based organizations are many and varied, and yet we are relentless in our efforts to fulfill our mission. Here at Front Step we are committed to upholding the same values and principles that make non-profits credible.


Our successes and accomplishments are directly related to those who have invested their resources and time in our organization. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to you for your ongoing support.
