What We Do

Relief

Front Step believes in giving a hand up, not a hand out. In close partnership with Word In Action International Ministries, we are poised to assist in times of crisis, but believe that relief efforts should be temporary. We believe that charity should be given with dignity and respect, along with a demand for accountability and personal growth. Likewise, it is with a heart of compassion that we give our support to those whose sole subsidence depends on the generosity of others, and believe it is our responsibility to be an advocate for the forgotten, disenfranchised, and those who cannot defend themselves.

Front Step's Relief efforts include:

  • Food pantry serves over 800 families per month
  • Food pantry feeds 100 people considered homeless per week

  • Seniors provided with frozen food restocking each week
