You Can Help Overcome the Problem of Violence in the World

Your support will help shine a light on the problem of intimate partner 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. 

Since 1978, First Step has been working to create peaceful families and safe communities in Wayne County.  Your support of this gala will help 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. More information about First Step can be found at firststep-mi.org.

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