Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, STEP services continue to be operating differently than we have in the past.   STEP continues to provide community employment support services, community based day services, remote services and limited in facility services based on the requirements of the Minnesota Department of Human Services and the Minnesota Department of Health.  STEP has a Covid 19 Preparedness Plan in place.  If you would like a copy of the plan, contact your usual STEP representative or call 507 238-4341 to request a copy.  STEP offices are reopened on a lessened schedule.  If you do not get an answer at 507 238-4341, please call Sue Eisenmenger at 507-399-1973 or Dominique Berg at 507-621-7084.

 

STEP UP TO EMPLOYMENT

STEP, Inc. provides support, training and employment to individuals at facility locations and throughout the community. STEP operates four offices, three in Fairmont and one in Blue Earth. The training provided is based on each person's needs and is based upon a plan put together by a team of people involved in a person's life. STEP works with families, human services, schools, vocational rehabilitation services and residential providers to plan for a person's services. While the training we provide is as individual as the people we serve, the training generally falls into areas such as employment, communication, social and recreational skills and use of the community.

STEP provides training and jobs at their four facility locations as well as throughout the community. Staff assist in training and supervising people at different jobs in the facility and in the community. STEP works with local employers to provide work for individuals in community, currently working with over 30 employers in the area. STEP provides staff supervision as small groups and individual work at local businesses. STEP also provides or arranges for transportation to and from the facility and work sites.
