Next Step Annual Scholarship Dinner Auction 2016 proved to be a fantastic affair! Guests registered and then enjoyed drinks while perusing the many robust silent auction tables. Later upstairs in the stately Missouri Athletic Club Ballroom dinner was served, videos shown, a live auction was held and speakers addressed the concerns and praises of TNS. TNS awarded over $120,000 in college scholarships to over 60 recipients for the 2015/2016 school year. The funding helps recipients within the greater St. Louis metropolitan area pay for tuition and books. Join us in our goal to keep this mission going!

Many families have been affected by the disease of alcoholism or chemical dependency. Often, relationships with family and friends are damaged beyond repair, and individuals lose financial as well as emotional support.  A 12 step program can help individuals with spiritual and emotional recovery while maintaining sobriety. Those who have actively participated in a 12-step recovery program often get to a point where they feel ready to take the next step: furthering their education. This is where The Next Step comes in – we help people in recovery take the next step in improving their lives.
