Financial Assistance FAQs

Stepping Stones is a nonprofit organization that has proudly served the Greater Cincinnati community since 1963. 

We offer a variety of recreation programs for children, teens and adults with disabilities at multiple locations. 

To support the programming needs of families, Stepping Stones offers Financial Assistance of up to $500 annually in our Recreation & Leisure programs. These programs include our signature Summer Day Camp as well as Summer Overnight Staycations, Saturday Clubs and Weekend Respites. 

All requests for financial aid are processed in chronological order once all necessary documentation has been received by our Finance Dept. The level of aid available is determined by family size and the annual income threshold. 


In order to serve as many families as possible, Stepping Stones has implemented a financial assistance cap amount from May 1, 20XX to April 30, 20XX. This cap is renewable annually — as long as the household continues to file the appropriate paperwork and meets financial assistance requirements.

  • INDIVIDUAL: Up to $500 of aid
  • FAMILY (2 or more): UP TO $2,500 of aid


After your application has been reviewed by our Finance Director, a Financial Assistance approval letter will be mailed to the household address. 

Note: Approval for Financial Aid does not confirm program enrollment. An additional confirmation packet will be mailed once enrolled 

If you have any questions regarding Financial Assistance, please contact the Director of Finance Melissa Geis by email or calling (513) 559-2442.
