One Step Closer
To reach out to the community, One Step Closer delivers programming throughout Halifax and its surrounding areas. reachAbility aims to serve more than 100 individuals a year in this way, and we welcome this opportunity to assist more persons with disabilities. We work with participants for ten days over a two-week period to deliver our popular Asset and Sycle programs. You will tackle a variety of topics, including the following:
- Stress and anger management
- Conflict resolution
- Workplace dynamics and ethics
- Healthy lifestyle choices and habits
- Positive and assertive interpersonal communication
- Self-esteem, self-confidence and self-efficacy
- Personality, values, motivation and attitudes
- Goal setting and planning
- Interviewing and understanding employer expectations
- Team dynamics
People who master these subjects are more likely to succeed in gaining and keeping employment, and they tend to report greater job satisfaction. The program is designed to create an open atmosphere that encourages you to share information with the other group members, caseworkers and program staff. You will be challenged to learn, laugh and grow in a supportive atmosphere that recognizes your unique attributes, talents and gifts.
At the end of the two weeks, you will have increased self-confidence and self-efficacy in relation to your work-based skills, as well as a greater capacity to effectively communicate and manage work-based conflict. By reducing these and other barriers to employment, the One Step Closer program is committed to fostering your development so that you can experience meaningful employment and personal growth.

This is a wonderful and important program that will hopefully make people feel as good as I do now that it’s done.”
“reachAbility helped me in so many ways. Knowing that there is people out there that care and want to help. The workshop taught me that things are very possible when you believe in yourself, set your goals and stick to them. The course was great in helping people find there ways. “
