Created November 16, 2018
Did  you know?   In 2018 Steps Coalition, working in collaboration with the Minority and Small Business Development Division of the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), provided workshops and training for over 50 Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) and Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) interested in becoming certified suppliers with the State of Mississippi. On November 13th, more than 20 businesses received their certificates of completion for MDA's 9-week "Model Contractor Development Program" which Steps Coalition hosted and co-sponsored. We hope that you will help Steps Coalition continue this very important economic development work on the Mississippi Gulf Coast by making a contribution today, and we thank you for your continued support.

More information about Steps Coalition:

The mission of the Steps Coalition is to promote an equitable recovery process and healthy, just, and sustainable communities in South Mississippi. The Steps Coalition shares these interconnected values: Affordable Housing, Historical Community Preservation, Economic and Environmental justice, and Human rights.

Since its inception in December of 2006, the Steps Coalition’s primary role has been to advocate for environmental justice for under-served and underrepresented communities on the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina and the BP Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill. And though we are still passionately addressing the negative impacts and recovery efforts of those two historic, catastrophic events, we believe now is an appropriate time to adjust our gaze forward to leverage our expertise in collaborative advocacy, economic development, and affordable housing to help the Gulf Coast plan and develop a thriving, culturally-inclusive economy for current and future generations. Toward that end, Steps Coalition successfully launched several programs in 2018 that we plan to build on in 2019 and your contribution of will ensure the continued sustainability of these programs which include: The Steps Coalition Community Development Loan Fund (Steps CDFI), The Bridge of Faith, The Turkey Greek Environmental Literacy Project.
