This supports five program participants, one each year, by helping to provide a continuum of care to help low-income individuals and families move toward self-sufficiency through employment, social services for those experiencing homelessness and those at risk of becoming homeless, and support for those living with HIV/AIDS.

Next Step Leader: $5,000 a year for five years
Supports program services for five participants a year, or 25 participants over five years.

Next Step Champion: $10,000 a year (or more) for five years
