Stepping into a Complete Campus Integration – Please join our efforts to build a Comprehensive Residential Facility on the existing Lighthouse Campus. This project will improve efficiency, program integration, and yield greater success. We are excited to report that The Nell J. Redfield Foundation has just given us a $1 million matching grant. From here on, every dollar given to this project will be matched by this generous foundation!

This project adds a 20-bed residential housing component to the existing Mathewson Family Counseling Center and Transitional Cottages. The design vision of this new facility is to accommodate the everyday living needs of women and children in distress. The building is designed as a nurturing healing residence that includes dorm rooms, a commercial kitchen and outdoor spaces that are conducive to a therapeutic environment. This expansion will enhance the quality of service provided and further meet the demand of families in need.

This 12,000 square foot expansion includes the new residential facility and a client resource center, integrating STEP2’s critical components onto one campus. This direct adjacency creates an environment that will be effective and efficient in the delivery of programs and services.

“The overarching goal of the STEP2 Residential Facility is to eliminate, or substantially reduce, the risk of harm to women and their families with a stable living environment on campus. On behalf of the STEP2 Board of Directors, staff, and project partners, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for your consideration of a capital contribution to this new residence.” – Diaz Dixon, CEO STEP2

    Do they treat gambling addiction? This ruins more lives in Nevada than anything yet I see nothing advertised about resources for this except GA.

      Our program is for drug and alcohol users and we take mostly pregnant IV users. So no, this program isn’t for gambling addictions.
