What is First Step?

When making a change to get out of a bad situation, you start with a step. That’s us – your first step to something better. First Step is a new beginning for victims of domestic violence. We offer advocacy services, case management, shelter services, and more. Today, you can take the First Step toward a healthier and more meaningful life.


It is with great regret the First Step Board of Trustees shares the following news:

The Annual Soul Shine Blues Festival, scheduled for Sept 28, 2019 has been cancelled.  The loss of our beloved Executive Director, Terri Mercer, in combination with other factors has led to this difficult decision.  To all of you who have supported First Step through Soul Shine for a number of years; our gratitude cannot fully be expressed.  In lieu of Soul Shine, First Step will be holding other fundraising events that will allow the community to show it's support.  Look for further information to follow in the coming months.
