Right Steps serves through several projects. Susana Homes, a residential facility, provides homes for orphaned, destitute or homeless infants, children and teens. Through a skills training program at Susana Homes, destitute mothers and older children are taught skills and trades enabling them to live independent lives and find success in society. Over the past ten years, Susana Homes has cared for more than 100 children.
Nwanyieze Memorial Clinic was established through Right Steps to provide basic healthcare needs for the residents of Susana Homes as well as area residents. The clinic also sponsors campaigns to teach and reach out to local residents.
Right Steps provides spiritual guidance to the community through the planting of local churches including The Church of Christ at Susana Homes which was established in 1998.
The hallmark ministry of Right Steps is a Christian school where over 250 children from the community are educated daily.
