A promotional/documentary video for the landmark organization STEPS to End Family Violence. STEPS provides services to abused women, as well as services to teens and children who have witnessed and/or experienced abuse in their homes. One of the focuses of the multifaceted STEPS program is to prevent inter-generational abuse and incarceration. In addition, their goal is to help people heal from the trauma of abuse and to assist them in developing healthy strategies for living. STEPS strives to affect policy through education and advocacy since the criminal justice system as well as the community needs information to understand the impact of domestic violence.
