Special Funds

The Da Rosa Fund

Sarah Da Rosa, the mother of Steps to Success students Karina, Sarina, AJ, and Christina, and wife of Antonio Rosa, was a vital part of the STS community for many years.  In 2016, we tragically lost Sarah. Even as we grieved, the Steps to Success family grew closer and spent time fondly remembering her and her legacy.  Sarah was an integral part of Steps, including her work on the Parent Council, participating in the CSI Care Package Night, and being a beacon of support for anyone and everyone.

This scholarship fund, started shortly after her passing, will serve Steps to Success students by helping them achieve their academic and life goals.
