To provide opportunities to street connected people so as for them to be independent.
We act responsibly, based on acceptance, we communicate with respect, believing in relationships of trust.
To approach street connected people, while at the same time giving them access to food, counseling, entertainment, first aid, clothing and personal hygiene. Our next goal is to provide space in apartments, in order for them to gain privacy. Our final goal is to provide them with the opportunity to develop their skills and/or to be trained in order for them to be autonomous.
Through complete suggestions and targeted actions, we pursue to give answers to problems that our fellow citizens, that live as outsiders, have to deal with and that experience social exclusion, with the goal for them to become self-dependent and self-reliant. We become their voice, when it’s needed, claiming rights that should be self-evident for every human being. We come across two types of people on the streets: Street Connected Adults (homeless, unemployed that live below the poverty line, people who use drugs, immigrants, refugees, human trafficking victims, sex workers etc). Street Connected Children (unaccompanied minors, working children, human trafficking victims etc).
How we operate
How we operate
Every 15 days our assembly is convened. Every work group has the responsibility to update the rest of the team about matters that concern their field. We discuss, communicate and make decisions as a group about matters that have to do with our cause. Steps is a creation of a private initiative. A non-profit initiative from people for people. We do not receive any type of funding from government or public carriers, we are not part of any financial or investment package that has as a goal to “reward” political choices and perpetuate social inequalities. Note on non-discrimination: We give equal opportunities to people, indicatively and not in a restrictive manner, regardless of gender, race, religious beliefs, inabilities, sexual orientation.
