Hi. I’m Les Jones. That’s me in the photo holding the key. I’m a proud Step Up Board member. Eleven years ago, you wouldn’t have recognized me. I was living on the streets. My mental health condition was taking its toll on me and on my family. I had lost everything. Today, I have been in my apartment for more than a decade, my relationship with family is strong and I teach computer classes. Thank  you Step Up and each and every one if its generous donors.

You are the key to unlocking the future for individuals experiencing mental health conditions and long term homelessness.

During this last week of National Mental Health Awareness Month, won’t you please consider making a gift of $100 or more in honor or in memory of someone special in your life?

Step Up’s website is including a scrolling tribute with the name of the individual you honor or remember with your short message throughout May and June. There’s no better time to show your commitment to Step Up’s mission than during National Mental Health Awareness Month!

MAKE A SPECIAL TRIBUTE GIFT FOR MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH online right now at www.stepuponsecond.org/ways-to-give. I’m living proof that your support and Step Up’s great staff and services changes lives for the better. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Les Jones
Step Up Board Member
