Mission Statement

To create a vibrant community by empowering at-risk women and adolescent girls to rise above the odds and succeed personally and professionally using gender-speciific training, education and prevention programs.

Description

InStepp, Inc. is a community-based, tax-exempt, charitable organization located in the City Center district of downtown Durham. Our corporate mission is to empower at-risk women and adolescent girls to rise above the odds and succeed personally and professionally using gender-responsive treatment approaches to address their specific needs and issues. As a lean organization, InStepp is heavily focused on engaging volunteers and partners to help achieve its mission.

InStepp also advocates for public policy changes that will improve the quality of life of at-risk women within the Triangle area community. This is accomplished through participation in coalitions and grassroots organizing and messaging campaigns aimed at educating and engaging the public around issues that impact the quality of life of InStepp’s target audience.

Although incorporated in 2004, InStepp did not begin to provide direct services to clients until April 2007, following the founder’s retirement from her previous career. Currently, the company has the three adult programs and one adolescent program ongoing.

Would you recommend InStepp, Inc?

by Charlandra M. (October 27, 2015)
I recently had an opportunity to volunteer with InStepp, Inc. as a clerical assistant. What can I say about the experience? The ladies I worked with were phenomenal. When you walk through the door, you can literally feel their positive energy. It was amazing to assist Ms. Womble as well as the ladies on her team. They do a great deal for their clients throughout the community, and the organization truly lives up to its mission statement. Ms. Womble exemplifies a servant leader and the ladies on her team do as well. The women at InStepp, Inc. work extremely hard in terms of empowering at-risk women throughout our community -- and helping countless women to succeed on a professional level. As a volunteer with this organization, I am eternally grateful for the experience. Volunteer with this organization -- you definitely won't regret it!!
