Ask for help: apply for assistance

Bright Steps Forward, Inc. relies solely on private donations and grants to be able to fulfil our mission to assist families in need. Because funding is limited, we must therefore restrict our financial assistance at this time to children residing in Miami-Dade, Broward or Palm Beach counties within Florida.

25 children from each county will be selected based on need. We invite all interested parties to complete the application below. Funding decisions will not be made until December for payment of therapeutic services in the following calendar year. Payment for services will be made directly to the provider only after receiving treatment plans with estimates for the calendar year. The amount of financial assistance provided will be based on need as well as funding available. Selected providers must be licensed within the State of Florida and provide services in the counties listed above.

Please be sure to explain your financial hardship clearly and expect that additional documentation may be requested to complete your application.

Fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory.
