Right Steps Mission Moment - Sage & Colton's Story
Right Steps’ mission is geared toward helping children like Colten and their parents Sage. Colten is currently one of our ten children enrolled in the Right Steps Pre-K program thanks to Indiana’s Early Education Matching Grant. The grant provided Sage an opportunity to place Colten in a high quality Pre-K program at no cost to her.
When she enrolled her son, Sage mentioned she was looking for a job and was not having much luck. Rhiannon Keener, center director of Right Steps Downtown, told her that Right Steps was hiring and if she was interested to submit an application. She did and within a week, she was hired as an employee! “I can now spend more time with him and see my son more often,” Sage stated happily. “My son is learning a lot at Right Steps Downtown. It is a great joy to watch him grow and learn. He comes home with new stories every day.”
