About STEP, Inc.

Incorporated in 1966, the Lycoming-Clinton Counties Commission for Community Action (STEP), Inc. is a private, nonprofit Community Action Agency. STEP stands for "Success Through Engagement and Partnership," which is achieved in two ways. First, STEP’s programs engage individuals, families, and communities in their own strategies for success - the customers become involved directly, and truly own their achievements. Secondly, because no single organization can do it all, success is achieved through partnerships with complementary groups and entities that can also assist these individuals, families, and communities.

Mission Statement

To engage diverse individuals, families and communities in the pursuit of social and economic success.

Vision Statement

STEP's vision is to be a positive community and economic force, recognized as a leader in the services we provide or through the navigation of services provided by our community partners.

Diversity Statement

STEP strives to create a culture of diversity in age, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, and perspective. This has proven to create an environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work.

It is the right thing to do. And, because it is the right thing to do…

STEP believes as a Community Action Agency we are a powerful platform for social change and equity for all.

STEP is committed to and accountable for a culture where all customers and staff are welcomed. Where everyone is respected, valued, celebrated, and safe despite perceived differences.

STEP will use our community presence to educate and model inclusiveness through the fulfilment of our mission and vision.

Service Area

STEP primarily serves residents of Lycoming and Clinton counties, with the Early Learning Resource Center Region 7 also serving Tioga County. Our Transportation services take residents to several counties outside of Lycoming and Clinton, and STEP AmeriCorps also can extend outside the bi-county area.
