About Next Step Ministries

Next Step Ministries helps women exit sexual exploitation in Calgary.


We do this by walking alongside these women as they break the cycles of addiction and abuse through our four programs that have been designed to help them recover from their past and move forward with hope into their future.


There is currently an unrelenting stream of women attempting to access Next Step Ministries. Our campaign target of $50,000 will enable us to continue to support women in our Housing and Day Programs


Make a life-changing difference by choosing to ride/walk with us on September 29th.


Our Goal is to have a safe place for every woman who wants to exit sexual exploitation.
