WHO WE ARE
Compassion, Community Outreach, and Harm Reduction
Next Step Initiative is a grassroots, state-registered nonprofit under the fiscal sponsorship of Community Shares.
Founded in 2017, we are located in Knoxville, TN and primarily serve vulnerable populations in the South Knoxville community who are experiencing homelessness, poverty, addiction, and trauma.
"Harm Reduction values life, choice, respect, and compassion over judgment, stigma, discrimination, and punishment."
