First Step News: Optimist Club Summer Fun Ice Cream Party

First Step would like to extend a big “Thank You” to the Optimist Club of Wichita Falls. Members of our local chapter of the Optimist Club are sponsoring our Summer Fun Initiative to ensure the children in our shelter have a Summer full of treats and activities. It has been a wonderful Summer break so far, and there is more fun to come. Last night, our shelter was full of smiles and sundaes with all the toppings! Thank you Optimist Club!  You made a lot of children very happy.

First Step News: Rock Against Violence 2015!

First Step’s annual Rock Against Violence event was a total success!  On June 27th, First Step board members, staff, and volunteers came together to put on another wonderful event.  Thank you to everyone who came out to support survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and to those who donated their time, energy, and resources to make Rock Against Violence 2015 special.  We are humbled by the generosity and kindness shown by members of our community, and we know that support is felt by the survivors we serve.  

Check out some pictures from the event!
