First Step

Basic Needs Support for Emergency Shelter and Animal Shelter

The Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation awarded First Step a $30,000 grant to support basic needs for youth, families, and animals.

The pandemic transformed how First Step delivers services and increased the agency’s costs for supplies to ensure domestic violence survivors’ and staff’s health and safety. Support from the Vera and Joseph Dresner Foundation will be for the provision of food, transportation, supplies, and animal care.
