In 1998, community leaders came to the realization of a sad truth. Many women and children in the Forsyth County area had been beaten, terrorized, and sometimes tragically killed. The truth of the matter is that no woman should have to live in an environment where she consistently fears for her safety. Neither should she have to fear for the well being of her children.
Community leaders recognized that a battered woman and her children need a place of healing and security. They envisioned a place where victims of domestic violence could go for food, shelter, guidance, and safety. This is how Next Step Ministries was born.
Next Step Ministries operates a wonderful thrift store (serious awesomeness, check out the virtual tour!) at 1116 E. Mountain Street to help meet these needs. Please consider popping up the road fifteen minutes to Kernersville and having a poke-about. The Christmas Room is now OPEN.
Thursday 10 AM – 3:30 PM
Friday 10 AM – 5:30 PM
Saturday 10 AM – 5:30 PM
Please tell everyone you know about the shop. Local domestic violence is very real and knows no societal boundaries.
