A Step Toward Hope's mission is to provide assistance — financial and otherwise — to those suffering with paralysis and other neurological disorders in the southern New Jersey and surrounding areas, and to raise funds for research that aims to discover new treatments and cures for paralysis.

A Step Toward Hope began in 2005 as an annual gala to raise money for the paralysis cause. The organization thrived and became an official
501-C3 charity in 2007.

Now, most of A Step Toward Hope’s events center around individuals who have recently been paralyzed, in order to help them fund specific needs like handicapped accessible vans or construction to their home.

A Step Toward Hope aims to help improve the quality of life for people living with paralysis. The organization is 100% volunteer-based, with no salaries to pay. Most events are funded and sponsored by Miles Technologies, the company whose employees founded A Step Toward Hope. This way, 100% of the money raised at events can go directly to helping people and making their lives better.
