Second Step Housing

Since 1995, Second Step Housing has been working to help eliminate homelessness in our community. Second Step Housing develops, renovates, and manages affordable housing, provides comprehensive case management, and offers educational opportunities for adults, children, and families working towards self-sufficiency. In addition, Second Step Housing collaborates and partners with other community agencies, the City of Vancouver and Clark County to ensure the successful delivery of wrap-around services for our clients.

There is a great organization in the Vancouver area called Second Step Housing. Second Step Housing is a program that helps place at-risk women and families in need of temporary housing until they can move into their own, permanent housing. These families have made the first step at getting their lives in order and this housing helps them move to the second step. We talk to Debby Dover who is the executive director and she tells us how donors and businesses in Vancouver help buy and renovate these homes that allow people to get back on their feet without setting them back financially.
