GIANT STEPS COMMUNITY PROGRAMS AT A GLANCE
Giant Steps knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2002, our Non-Profit Organization realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Giant Steps.
Giant Steps Community Programs, Inc. wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
The more you become aware of and respond to the needs of others, the richer your own life becomes.
