A nonprofit in Bucks County is continuing its efforts to help young people with special needs to adapt to real-life situations.

The Next Step Programs, headquartered at 204 North West Street in Doylestown, recently celebrated its last classes of the season. Its programs are designed to assist those living with special needs as their transition into living independently.

“In Building Skills for Independent Living we broke into groups and discussed what living independently meant to us,” event organizers said online.

“We also made a weekly schedule, created a budget and set SMART goals! In Meal Prep some of our group made a pizza dip with homemade rolls and the others decorated cupcakes before we finished our cookbooks and had a little party.”

Joshua Fields and Meghan Kensil founded “The Next Step Programs” in Doylestown when they were teenagers. Their goal was to change the way the community treats people with disabilities. Eight years later, the nonprofit is still fulfilling its mission.
