    Step 2 is an organization that is breaking the cycle of addiction in families. They provide comprehensive, coordinated services related to the treatment and recovery of chemically dependent women and their families, resulting in sustainable self-sufficiency. Formed in 1986, they have served over 4000 women, with 200 women and over 400 children participating last year. CEO Cheree Boteler will tell you how this 501c3 organization is able to help women re-join society and gain jobs to support their families.   Step2 is a multistep program that includes residential and out-patient treatment for women overcoming their substance abuse addictions while getting away from domestic violence. The program gives women the option to be treated at the center or from their own home.  NOTE:  A woman who has been helped by Step2 will also be accompanying Cheree.

                                      About Our Luncheon

                                      Newcomers & Neighbors holds a monthly social luncheon or evening Mix & Mingle for members and their guests that also serves as the Club’s general business meeting. It is often held on the fourth Thursday of the month, except for October, November and December, when it's held the third Thursday.  At each event, we have entertaining programs featuring local talent and a basket raffle. Events are generally held at the Atlantis Spa & Resort, but may occasionally move to other locations during the year.  At $25 per person, it is an outstanding value for great food, great company, and great entertainment. New members and members attending for the first time are seated together in a front row table and will be introduced by Hospitality.

                                      Except for our annual special event, you must be a club member to register for a luncheon.  You may have up to 5 guests (your guests do not have to be members).
