NextStep Support is a service provider that is 10 years in the making. Established in 2008, we provide contract services to private schools and learning institutions to develop programs and services for them and under their names. As a result, we are resonsible for the design and development of some of the most popular private education and social programs in the Greater Toronto Area.
Understanding that the high cost of private education is a barrier to inclusion, we have recently ventured to develop a series of comprehensive Transition Programs and Services that are effective and affordable, and that work within the budget of individuals receiving funding through Developmental Services Ontario and the Ontario Disability Support Program. Our goal is to deliver high quality programs and services at are reasonably priced, to support our members in getting more out of their communities. Members learn the skills necessary to reduces their support needs, moving from 1:1 towards 3:1 or from 3:1 towards 6:1 staffing support needs, thus enabling our members to get more for their money over time.
We offer Flexible Part-time and Full-time fee for service options, including: Daytime, Evening, Weekend, Holiday and Overnight programs and services; with short - long term accommodation options arriving soon! With a dire need for young adult services across Ontario, we are rapidly developing new locations to better serve our community; with goals to grow and expand across Southern Ontario, with you as our trusted partners.
Our services empower individuals of differing abilities to lead active and rewarding lives in their communities. We look at a person's entire day and incorporate all of his or her needs, including Social, Recreation, Leisure, Work & Community Living supports for individuals transitioning from High School through to Adulthood.
We’re very excited to introduce the location of our new office at 720 Bathurst Street, the Centre for Social Innovation in the Annex community. CSI Annex is a five-story, beautifully restored brick and beam building; packed with innovators. Each of the co-working floors has a unique vibe. You can relax in the lounge with a snack from our locally sourced CSI Cafe.
“An amazing atmosphere. Everyone is extremely friendly but at the same time working hard so it keeps you motivated. Its a no-brainer option.” – Itay
We want to give you the opportunity to help fund a full day of learning or activity. This will provide support to one of our members on the Developmental Services Ontario (DSO) wait list waiting to received government (passport) funding.
A donation will cover the cost of an individual for a full day; depending on their support needs.
The recipient will send you a thank you card to show their gratitude. They might send a photo or two, if he or she isn't too camera shy!
Lets support individuals with their transition into adult lifestyles, by giving them options to expand their worlds.
