Another Step partners with people with developmental disabilities to create the lives they choose
Another Step, Inc. has been providing services to people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities since 1992.

Since that time Another Step has been a leader in providing a wide variety of creative individualized community based supports.

We have a firm belief that by asking and listening to what each individual has to say about their personal goals, we can  provide the supports that will help them successfully achieve those goals.

TEMPORARY AGENCY CLOSURE

TO OUR ANOTHER STEP COMMUNITY:
To comply with the procedures and orders of Rockland County and Nw York State and to maintain the safety of our
individuals and staff, all Day Hab programs will be suspended and the offices of Another Step will be closed pending further guidence from the OPWDD.  We thank you for your patience and support, and we will provide information on resuming our programs as soon as we receive it.


A Plea From Another Step!
We have five group homes in Westchester and Rockland counties known as Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs) for our developmentally disabled individuals whose needs require 24-hour staff coverage.  Now they are sheltering in place, unable to leave the residences for their regular daily activities that Another Step provides.

WE NEED BASIC SUPPLIES TO HELP OUR HARD-WORKING STAFF SAFELY SUPPORT OUR VULNERABLE GROUP HOME RESIDENTS.

Supplies that we need are:
- FACE MASKS (can be cloth or paper)
- FOREHEAD THERMOMETERS
- GOWNS & GOGGLES
- PAPER TOWELS
- DISINFECTING WIPES
- HAND SANITIZER

Basically, we need the supplies that vanished from store shelves when the virus hit the news. We don't need a huge amount of the above supplies, any amount will help.

Another Step, Inc. serves individuals with developmental disabilities throughout the Westchester and Rockland County areas by taking small groups into the community to do activities on a daily basis. As you can imagine, recent events have been very stressful for our individuals with the closure of their familiar places. Our day program had to suspend services as of Monday, March 16 due to the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus to our individuals.

We are a nonprofit agency, not a government facility and not specifically a health care provider, even though we are responsible for the health and well-being of our staff and residents. We find we fall through the cracks when it comes to getting county and state offerings of supplies.

As a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, any donation of funds or in-kind supplies is tax deductible to you as provided by law.
You can contact us with donation information though our contact us tab or donate using the button above.

Our individuals and staff thank you for your support!
