Our Mission and Philosophy
The services and programs of Step Forward Activities have been established to provide vocational training, employment opportunities, residential services, and supported living opportunities to persons with disabilities or other barriers to employment.
Within the scope of these services, the program staff has made a commitment to strive to accomplish certain valued outcomes, for individuals who participate in the programs offered by Step Forward Activities. These outcomes are individualized, yet are based on the philosophy that work and residential settings should be physically and socially integrated within the community while providing an opportunity for earned wages and enhanced skills and self-esteem.
Step Forward Activities believes that in order to meet the needs of persons with disabilities, vision to the future must be clear, realistic, and cost effective to the individual, as well as reducing State and Federal tax supports.
The staff, management, and Board of Directors of Step Forward Activities are dedicated and committed to making a positive impact on the lives of persons with disabilities.
We believe in being proactive and progressive. We search out opportunities that others say cannot be done and we do them. Our only limitations as a business, and as individuals are limitations that we place on ourselves. Our successes both past and present are directly attributed to our vision and our commitment. We look forward to the challenges of the future and the opportunities those challenges present. We are Step Forward Activities, how can we help you?
