Get Help


The application process for individuals applying through a partner organization or as an independent individual is as follows:

  • If you are a social worker at a hospital serving families at risk of eviction or foreclosure, see the email listed below and contact us for services and funding.
  • Candidates for the Step Onward Foundation’s college funding and mentorship services come to us through various organizations that serve the underage and young adults at risk of chronic homelessness or with health crises resulting in homelessness.
  • We seek references for young adults who have shown great persistence and spirit in their own survival and have utilized the resources that have been offered to them to their current fullest potential.
  • Candidates must be approaching high school graduation or graduated and seeking funding and mentorship to fill the gaps they have that may keep them from attending college. We have an application process and coordinate with social work teams to evaluate and assess need. We respond immediately to mitigate homelessness during crisis.

If you are seeking help and not associated with an organization already providing services or mentorship to you, we still want to hear from you.
