Mission Statement

To provide life skills training, vocational programs, supportive residences, and recreational activities to empower individuals with developmental disability to realize their dreams of Optimal Independence, Meaningful Employment, Significant Social Relationships, and Full Participation in our Community.


Just like you and me, people with Developmental Disabilities don't want to be somebody's burden. They want to contribute, and to live as independently as they can-whether with their families or with friends and housemates of their own choosing.

Unfortunately, the simple skills that are needed aren't always learned in school. For this reason, One Step Beyond starts with the basics and continually reinforces them throughout the program:

  • Functional literacy in math, writing, and reading
  • Household management
  • Healthy exercise and diet
  • Community Service
  • Effective social and communication behaviors
  • Friendships and a real social life
At One Step Beyond, we saw the level of services provided for individuals with developmental disability in our community and knew instinctively that we could do better. We have created many community responsive programs and are eager to continue to go One Step Beyond until Individuals with developmental disability attain truly equal access to the life opportunities those of us without disability simply take for granted.

These programs include:
Culinary Arts Program
Life Skills Programs
Vocational Programs
Parent Support Services
Supportive Residenses
Fitness and Recreational Activites

Please join us in helping young people with developmental disability become to the utmost of their abilities, contributing, and fulfilled members of our community.
