Many families have been affected by the disease of alcoholism or chemical dependency. Often, relationships with family and friends are damaged beyond repair, and individuals lose financial as well as emotional support.  A 12 step program can help individuals with spiritual and emotional recovery while maintaining sobriety. Those who have actively participated in a 12-step recovery program often get to a point where they feel ready to take the next step: furthering their education. This is where The Next Step comes in – we help people in recovery take the next step in improving their lives.


We offer scholarships to help pay tuition to colleges or vocational programs. Requirements include being active in a 12 step program and have a minimum of six consecutive months of recovery (clean and sober), doing service/volunteer work, being employed and the ability to show financial need.
