“I came home from the dentist and cried. Not because of the pain I was in, but because I was so grateful for the help you provided me. I never would have been able to complete all the dental work needed and I am so excited to be able to eat again. Thank you for all that you do.

Nobody sits you down and says before you get into this massive amount of debt, here's what you need to know about budgeting... Thanks to STEP we were given the resources to be able to pay off $30,000 of debt over the past five years.

I really appreciate you all and everything you do. Working with me, always understanding and no judgment. We made mistakes and now we are trying to fix [our financial situation]. I really appreciate everything you do to help the enlisted, myself, and my family.
