Little Steps is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a complete set of services to teen and young parents. We offer an environment of encouragement and accountability to help young mothers and fathers become more confident, self-sufficient parents. We recommend participation in all three components for the maximum benefit of our program; parenting classes, goal setting plans, and parent-child activities.
You can enroll in our Earn While You Learn Program at any time during your pregnancy or if you already have children. Our program is free of charge and you can earn Baby Bucks for participation and reaching your goals. Baby Bucks can be redeemed in our Baby Boutique for diapers, baby equipment, household supplies, and more.
If you are between the age of 13–24 and are interested in enrolling in our program, call Melena Hood at (864) 616-0376 or email Melena@LittleStepsSC.org.
Programs Also Include:

Our classes cover topics such as the stages of pregnancy, crib and car seat safety, parenting skills, and developmental milestones. Life skills classes focus on financial literacy, continuing education, pregnancy and STD prevention, and building healthy relationships.
We guide you through assessing your current circumstances, exploring where you would like to be next year (and in the years ahead) and determine what steps will be necessary to arrive at that desired future. We tailor a plan specifically for you with attainable goals.
Our parent-child activities are based on The Palmetto Basics, five principles that encompass much of what experts find is important for children from birth to age three. The Basics are five fun, simple, and powerful ways that every family can do to give every child a great start in life.
