As the needs and outcomes of our clients change, so do we. Individuals with disabilities want more ways to learn, grow, and be a part of the community. Our newest Day Service option is the Start Toward Emerging Possibilities Program or STEP Group.
This program is designed to give individuals chances to go out into the community to attend events, learn, and volunteer. We want to support and strengthen each individual’s uniqueness to maximize their potential of achieving their individualized goals. Offering services in small groups of five or less allows the time to cater to each individual’s needs and goals.
Our STEP group was utilized as a small group service during the height of COVID-19 and is now serving as a program in which any client can drop into on any given day. With the hiring of our new Community Support Professional, we will have a calendar of events available Online soon for clients to choose events and activities to attend.
The STEP group has taken trips to the Sheriff’s office, the Pier, Parks, and more. We are excited to continue to develop this program and have many options for clients to attend events, go to cooking classes, attend exercise programs, and more. Be on the lookout for our STEP calendar coming soon!
