Who We AreStepping Stones is a nonprofit, United Way partner agency that has been making an impact on the Greater Cincinnati community since 1963. We offer a variety of educational and recreation program opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
At Stepping Stones, children, teens and adults with various abilities find pathways to independence that improve their lives and enable them to be more fully participating members of the community.
A History of Innovation
Stepping Stones is known for innovation and creatively meeting unmet needs of the community. In 1963, we pioneered camping programs for children and adults who had few or no alternatives by founding the region’s first summer program for individuals with disabilities.
Our Step-Up program was also Southwest Ohio’s first alternative education program of its kind for students on the autism spectrum who have exhausted options in traditional school settings. Currently the program serves students from more than 13 schools districts.
