Empowering people toward self-sufficiency through education, support services and community partnerships.

Educate. Advance. Empower.

Welcome to An Intergenerational Cycle of Opportunity

Step Up Suncoast is the leader in identifying needs and bringing together resources and services for individuals, children, and families in our five-county area. By empowering people toward self-sufficiency through education, support service, and community partnerships, our vision of providing a pathway to employment and intergenerational economic security can be realized.

Inspiring hope involves the right mixture of commitment, fortitude, education, services, resources and relationships. Change is difficult, but Step Up Suncoast is here to provide support, guidance and strategies to move families out of the pattern of poverty.

Individuals working towards change find the process to be full of stops and starts, with small successes and goals realized over time. Step Up Suncoast staff connects individuals and families through programs that guide change and encourage movement toward personal, lifelong self-reliance – thereby improving lives and strengthening the communities we serve.

Serving The Suncoast And Beyond

With a whole-family approach to making a difference, Step Up Suncoast provides a wide variety of services and programs over a five-county area: Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Manatee, and Sarasota.

Exact demographic and statistical data varies by program and service.
