Pam Peeling, left, coordinator of the Step By Step Wellness program at Catholic Charities of Oswego County, joins staff members Desiree, seated, and Lee Ann in preparing goodie bags for participants in the program's Young Empowered Adults (YEA!) group. Step By Step recently hosted an open house at their location inside the Catholic Charities building, 365 W. First St. in Fulton. Community members had the opportunity to tour Step by Step, meet staff members and learn more about the YEA group and the benefits it offers participants. Exclusively for young adults between the ages of 18-25 who have been diagnosed with a chronic mental illness and are beginning to live more independently, the group provides an opportunity to meet with other young adults for peer support and programming designed to meet their unique needs.
