Join us on December 1, 2018 as we partner with Step By Step to put on a Christmas Celebration!

What is Step By Step?

Step By Step was founded in 1997 with the mission to transform the lives of at-risk pregnant women, enabling them to deliver healthy babies, embrace positive parenting and establish a safe home.  27 trained professional nurses and counselors work with over 1000 clients, encouraging them to break out of cycles of poverty, abuse and neglect and fight for a better future for themselves and their children - one small step at a time.
 

What is Northview’s role?

Every year, Step By Step’s team members, clients and their families join together to celebrate Christmas with dinner, Santa photos, cookie decorating and much more! This event is a highlight of the year for many. It also gives previous client moms an opportunity to continue to be involved with their Step By Step family. Northview is hosting one of the two Christmas celebrations held in the Seattle area. Last year we had over 500 guests come through our doors!
