Meet The Founder

Dominiece Cox is the founder and managing director of Better Steps Life Skills Center, founded in 2014. She started out at the age of 18 helping people with disabilities become more independent in their daily lives and developed a companion agency months later. Her passion is to help individuals in disadvantaged communities achieve their goals by providing life skills support and development.

Dominiece has been actively serving the southern region of Florida and has had a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of families through the work that she undertakes at Better Steps Life Skills Center. She has held many community events as a way of giving back to the community and partners with the local Miami-Dade Police Department to host community events for disadvantaged families. Dominiece strives to see many more families live the life they have always dreamed of having.
