As always we would love to talk with you about ideas you may have, or if you are new to STEPS point you in the right direction of groups and projects that you might like to participate in.

All 3 groups would welcome new members. Contact the STEPS office at (607)403-0069 or Stepscommunity@s2aynetwork.org .
