Mission: Our vision is that no person within our service area lacks the clothing needed to be employed, to maintain a healthy and hygienic life, and to be socially accepted. To that end, One Small Step provides free clothing and household linens to people in need, and builds lasting relationships with clients, characterized by love, trust, and respect.
