Programs and Services

We believe people of all abilities should have meaningful work in their lives and opportunities for life skills. No matter the starting point, accomplishing goals and meeting expectations builds self-confidence and life satisfaction.

STEP offers a continuum of employment opportunities to meet individual interests and support needs. From a completely independent job to a more supported career option, STEP works with each person to find a match to meet employment goals.

We proudly offer and maintain our own transportation services to assure everyone has equal opportunity to attend the programs and work experiences.

It’s not all work and no play at STEP, however. Our clients and staff take time to schedule fun events and special activities. Clients love to dress up, take outings, and just enjoy life.

Individualized Services

STEP recognizes the importance of individualized therapy. Each client joins our program with a unique set of interests, limitations, and abilities. STEP takes the time to understand each client as an individual. Service recommendations are then assigned to meet specific life and work goals.

Transporation is a large part of empowering the people we serve. STEP provides dedicated transportation to and from client work sites and community events.

We are proud to offer this vital client service and to share our mission of serving, teaching and empowering people. Our clients enjoy being able to participate in the community and have a sense of independence. Our vehicles are beautifully identified with the STEP logo and sponsorship messages.
