Giant Step Services

Welcome to Giant Step

Giant Step Services is a community-based post-secondary program geared toward young adults with special needs. It is comprised of two overlapping components:

Step I is a two-year comprehensive educational, vocational, independent living and social program that maximizes each young adult’s potential for living away from home. Students are engaged in furthering their education while starting a career or vocational training program.

Our students reside in a modern, attractive tree-lined apartment complex in Hauppauge, New York, about one hour from New York City and one hour from Long Island’s eastern end. The apartment complex is equipped with two swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness center and other recreational facilities.
