Touch a Truck is quickly becoming one of the most popular family events in North America and First Steps is thrilled to be able to bring it to Saint John.
The aim of First Steps is to provide a supportive transitional housing facility, Second Steps housing, Outreach Services, School, Day Care, and Child Development Programming. First Steps strives to ensure that young women who have no safe place to live will have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby; and through partnering with existing community services will assist these young women in moving towards self-sufficiency and a better quality of life. First Steps provides a supportive environment where young mothers can continue their education, further their personal development and gain the skills required to thrive as individuals and as parents.
