About Homes for the Holidays
Homes for the Holidays is a popular event that showcases prominent homes magnificently decorated, giving guests a chance to get into the spirit of the holidays while glancing at interior design and architecture. Last year, more than 2,000 guests took part in touring beautifully decorated homes, including the 27,000-square-foot Harrah House on the Rancharrah Estate owned by the late casino magnate Bill Harrah. Support for this event will allow STEP2 to continue providing comprehensive services to chemically dependent women and their children working toward sobriety and self-sufficiency. Tickets will go on sale in October.
STEP2 was founded in 1986 with a mission to provide long-term comprehensive substance abuse treatment for women and their children suffering from chemical addiction, poverty and domestic violence. The result is self-sufficient healthy families. Annually, STEP2 serves 170 families with a greater than 60 percent success rate.
