Alice 96.5 Holiday Drive

96.5 Alice’s Morning Show, with Bill & JLynn, is getting set to once again step up for the holidays with a Holiday Drive for STEP2, a local organization that helps women and their families in recovery. 

Women and their children live on the STEP2 campus, on average, for one year. In addition to treatment services, STEP2 helps the women in the program find suitable employment, reunify with children, and access quality childcare. When a woman is ready to leave STEP2, she is clean and sober, gainfully employed, and she has learned life skills that will allow her to break free from patterns and environments that perpetuated addiction to create and maintain a better life for herself and her children.

Learn more by listening to Bill & JLynn chat with Mari Hutchinson, STEP2’s CEO.
