Welcome to Stepping Out, Inc.

Stepping Out desires:


For every parent to leave a legacy of responsibility, self-control and love for their children.

For anyone who feels like a victim to become a victor.


What We Do

SOI makes available a portfolio of curriculum specifically chosen because it encourages a new paradigm of positive thinking and contributes to making stronger, more secure families, a dedicated workforce and engaged citizens for our community.

Testimony by F.L. “The Stepping Out program has helped me in so many ways. Before I started this class, I was hid in a shell of self-doubt, pity, and years of with-drawl. I started the class and my life changed. Now, I forgive people who have wronged me and most of all I changed my attitude about life. Life is much better when you stop thinking negatively. I always thought negatively. I still do to a point, but I changed my attitude and the problems changed. I now feel as if I have a new family who really cares about me and my life. They have helped me be a great person. People will always have change in their life but with this program it helps to teach us a different and positive way to look at it. I hope and pray that this will continue for many years to come. Thank you to all the Stepping Out people who care about God and people.”
