Support Toward Employment Program (STEP) is a part of the Communitas Employment programs which offers people diagnosed with mental illness the opportunity to receive supports from an Employment Specialist. The primary goal of the program is to assist individuals in finding employment out in community. The employment specialist works with the individual to determine career themes, goals and areas of employment that would interest them. The STEP model is based on the Individual Placement and Support model and the only criteria for receiving services is a referral from Fraser Health and a desire to secure employment.
