You Can Help Overcome the Problem of Violence in the World

Your support will help shine a light on the problem of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community.

Come and join your First Step family at this fun awards gala, and share in a delicious dinner, drinks, dancing, and silent auction. 

By purchasing an event sponsorship or buying a ticket to the “First Step You Are the Light Gala,” you ensure that when a victim of domestic or sexual violence reaches out for help, First Step will be there. 

First Step stands ready to help survivors who need support to transform their lives from fear and trauma to hope and safety, but we need your help.

Your support of this gala will provide free services, such as shelter, transitional housing, counseling, legal information, children’s programs, assault response, food, transportation, and advocacy. First Step even has a program for the pets of the families in shelter, so that furry loved ones don’t get left behind.

We will be presenting awards and celebrating the work of key people who have made a significant contribution to First Step’s mission. The evening will be yours to celebrate your impact on the community, and enjoy the music, food, dancing, and company
