Through surveys, listening sessions, and researching best practices around the country, we have learned that if we can break silos and resource gaps, we can better assist people in our community. Step Up launched the Bridges Beyond Benefits (B3) Network on July 1, 2022, a Facebook group designed to bridge the public benefits’ cliff by encouraging community and peer engagement through information and resource sharing.
