100K for STEP


Stand with STEP

Southern California possesses the largest military community in the country, with over 125,000 courageous individuals in uniform. Men and women, who have embraced their mothers and fathers, wives and husbands, and young children, not knowing if this time will be the last time.

Heroes who have left hearth and home to protect the freedoms of all they love and must leave behind.

For those who return, the battle continues.  

In transitioning from active duty service, most must overcome the challenges of unemployment or underemployment. Today, there are 91,000 military families in Southern California living on limited means, lacking the necessary resources and support to meet even the basic needs of their families.  

Join us now and STAND WITH STEP to quadruple YOUR impact for our veterans as they reclaim financial self-sufficiency.

For one family:

$25 Diapers for one child for one week
$50 Emergency food for one person for two weeks
$75 Our cost to give a financial seminar to one family
