Help Raise $50,000 by April 30


“StepUp Ministry is a family that gives you the push you need to go forward in life. It provides the tools and lessons that you may not have gotten when you were younger. I get that warm happy feeling everything I think about StepUp.” - Danequa W.

As a single mother of three, Danequa came to StepUp looking for a support system that could provide encouragement, motivation, and guidance for herself and her three children – Serenity (16 months), Keymora (4), and Nehemiah (3).


Danequa is six months into the one-year Life Skills program. She is working with her co-partner to learn how to create a budget, and is involved with Triple P, which is helping her to learn strategies and different parenting styles to support her children.

Currently, she is driving a school bus for Durham Public Schools and is in the beginning stages of attaining her GED. Danequa is setting goals to become a Certified Nursing Assistant for home health.

As for her future…she would like to own her own home and be the best mom possible.

Your support will help Danequa and her children, along with other great families get a second chance. Please help us raise $50,000 by April 30.
