Step Up for Kids

Strong families are the foundation of a strong community, and when parents feel connected and supported, children do better.

Who We Are

Established in 2008
We are a non-profit organization that works to connect and support parents in the Prescott area.

Founded by mothers, Step Up for Kids began fund and awareness-raising by implementing a simple idea with a few Prescott businesses. We gave them a “step up” with a stool that is easily manipulated by young children, colorfully painted by volunteers, and placed in a restroom that may serve children.

The Parent Company

We need your help to develop the parent company!

Step Up for Kids is embarking on a project to help strengthen families in our community: the creation of a centrally located facility in Prescott designed for parents to connect, learn and share while their children have a safe space to play. We would be honored to have your insight to help us make our project a reality.

Through this drop in center, parents will have access to community resources, information and education, including a resource information kiosk, parenting workshops, and family activities. In order to generate revenue to sustain the center, as well as make it a more attractive place to meet, we intend to create a café area in which baked goods and other refreshments are for sale. We are in the beginning stages of this project. In addition to donating to seed this project, please stay tuned for specific asks as time goes on. We envision much multi-generational collaborative potential.

Please contact us if you are interested in supporting this project. We would also like you to pass along this invitation to anyone else you believe should be involved in this project.

Since the making of this video, parent education has become available – www.newdirectionsinstitute.org.

Mom to Mom Support

Our peer-to-peer “Mom to Mom” program exists to support parents as they adapt to their new, demanding role.

We know the value of a smooth transition into parenthood, and believe that children blossom from supported parents. So, we have initiated a volunteer-driven model of post-partum care, in hopes that many more may benefit from the resulting social and practical support.

Getting ready to be a mom? A volunteer can ease your transition with weekly visits or helping out in whatever way you need.
