Our Action....


To encourage Community Resilience and Self-sufficiency


I am active in my community as a Supporter, with a great passion for working

with immigrants, refugees, elders, ex-offenders, and youth.  I also enjoy volunteering

for causes that involve Civil Rights, Social Action Education, Self-Sustainability, 

Human Rights and Poverty Alleviation. 

Maria Siemaszko
Founder & President
Strong Advocate for the Less Fortunate

After working many years in a local Career Center, I became aware of

the need for men to have a clothing service within our community.  

Thankfully this became a reality in 2016.  Stepping Up 4 Men Program

fills a great void, which was lacking for men in need of clothing for interviews

and other needs. I am happy to be a part of this organization and

a great program to continue serving men in need.

As a developer I promote capacity-building and empowerment programs providing 

underserved populations an opportunity to an improved way of life.

 I'm an advocate of participatory planning methods providing marginalized groups

an opportunity to participate in local community planning processes.

The overall goal in mind is to create local solutions,
