Next Step partnered with Kent County to maintain 250 vacant properties. Our services included boarding up abandoned homes, removing trash and maintaining lawns so the properties were cared for until someone moved in.


Our construction and maintenance division allows employees to feel pride as they learn a variety of new skills while providing Next Step with sustainable income.
