By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - December 30:

STEP2 offers long-term treatment for women struggling to overcome substance abuse.

The non-profit started 31 years ago, and offers several services, including treatment, child care and job placement assistance.

Annually, it serves about 250 women who stay with their children, in one of 25 cottages on campus.

COO Mari Hutchinson says, "When the women move in those, they're fully furnished with pots, pans, dishes bedding, you name it. and we rely on the community for those donations as well, year-round."

100 percent of the money donated goes toward the women and children in need in our community. Also needed are clothing donations.
