At Stepping Stones, acts of kindness are fundamental to our mission of increasing independence and promoting inclusion for children and adults with disabilities. Regardless of our roles — program participant, staff member, or volunteer — we look beyond the abilities and disabilities to make meaningful connections.

Acts of Kindness Around Stepping Stones

Michael B., a quiet, courteous 28-year-old participant in Adult Day Services, takes the initiative to wipe off tables, sweep, and push in chairs at the end of his groups program day.

Volunteer Larry Bennett and his certified therapy dog, Frye, make weekly visits to Step-Up, our alternative education program for students with autism. Interactions with the 3-year-old black Lab boost moods and create a sense of calm for students and staff alike.

When 56-year-old Andrea B.’s group from Adult Day Services stops by the Stepping Stones administrative office, she shares her gift of a green thumb by watering staff members’ plants.
