Step Forward Program at Alongside You


What is the Step Forward Program?

The Step Forward Program at Alongside You offers financial assistance to clients who may need some additional help subsidizing our services. Alongside You operates using a sliding scale for fees in an effort to keep our services accessible to as many people as possible. Our hope is that this program will enable even more people to be able to receive care.

In addition to receiving donations, Alongside You holds events to benefit this program. Individual community members, local businesses, organizations, and Alongside You clients are given the opportunity to donate to this program to help provide access to our services for those who may not otherwise be able to afford it. Since inception, all funds have been held in a separate account, audited by our accounting firm and will be dispensed based on need at the discretion of our Directors.

We started this program because we are fortunate to live and work in the community we do, and because we believe this program can make a difference in many lives.

Exciting Update – December 2022

We are excited to announce that we have joined forces with the 140 Sports Association, and charity that we have collaborated with since we opened Alongside You. Meg and Andrew Neufeld, our founders, have entered into an agreement with Fred Wells and the 140 Sports Association to join the leadership of the charity and to take the charity in a direction that continues the work of 140 Sports Association and expands it to include the Step Forward Program.

In 2023, the charity will be renamed, and 140 Sports and the Step Forward Program will become the flagship programs of the charity. We will announce more very soon.

In the meantime, donations are able to received by 140 Sports Association for the Step Forward Program starting immediately. We are so excited about this development and can’t wait to share more information in January.
