Next Step Transition Center and S.T.E.P.S. Vocational Training

Short Business Description
My son goes to NSTC and has flourished since first beginning the program. They keep him engaged, active, and challenged to learn new vocational and social skills everyday. He loves the program and program staff. The best program for our handi-capable population I've seen over the past thirty years in the bay area.
My brother goes here and absolutely loves it! We wait for the calendar to come out each month and he picks out what activities and day trips he wants to go to (sometimes 5 days a week). The staff is excellent and I am extremely grateful it is close to home. We couldn't be happier with their program.
Long Business Description

​Next Step Transition Center is not only a service provider, a day habilitation center, and a group home, but also a home away from home for all of our young adults. Our day program gives young adults a place to increase their confidence by working on their independent living, social, and vocational skills daily.

“Traci Johnston, our founder, began as a life skills teacher in the public school system. As the years went on she struggled with the idea of her students leaving school without a place to go. She came to the realization that she could provide a “college like experience” for these young adults through a structured day program. She developed Next Step as a program where young adults can continue learning and growing towards independence and community integration.

We began in one room at the Deer Park Community Center with a handful of young adults. Information about our structured program began to spread and our group of young adults grew. Before we knew it, we were in need of a new facility in order for all of our young adults to have space to grow and learn.

We continue to grow and look forward to our next steps as a company and day program!”

I just want to say that I attended a presentation by Traci Johnston and was very impressed with her! She is extremely knowledgeable and really on the ball. They are relatively new in our area, but I will be checking out Next Step for my own son.
