“Since 1991 the Sacramento Hostel has employed and partnered with STEP. The hard work of STEP employees allows our hostel staff to focus on the personal needs of our guest, thereby providing a superior hostel experience. In addition to these obvious benefits, the staff and I receive the daily inspirational gift of watching and working with people who overcome mighty obstacles every day of their lives, just to perform the tasks you and I take for granted.”

“We are extremely pleased with the high level of quality and service we have received from Aaron and the STEP Program. Our orders are filled and delivered promptly. I especially appreciate the fact that we are able to trust STEP and Aaron with the keys to our warehouse, as we are not always available when they deliver. Their attention to detail and passion for their work is clearly apparent. I will continue to highly recommend the STEP Program.”

“We sure do appreciate the fast local service. The product is always perfect and in the balloon bouquet business if the weight isn’t solid you lose the bouquet. The staff that deliver are so nice and they stack them neatly in our storage area. I would recommend them to anyone!”
— Patti Liske, Manager, Party Concierge. With over 25 years in the business, the Party Concierge is well known in the Sacramento area for Event Decor Services.
“We continue to have a wonderful experience in our relationship with STEP Vocational. Our synergistic relationship makes me proud. They have provided daily janitorial services to a place that is used by hundreds of teenagers each week. In exchange we provide a community space where they can process Mailer jobs. The teens see people with disabilities living and working right here in their community and that adds to their personal growth.”
