An assortment of family involved activities wait for all youth in the Steip residence. A focus on a well-balanced family life is paramount to the experience of all youth within the Steip home. Life skills, schooling and personal development are also very prominent and extensive.
Jenn and Sean pride themselves on their culinary prowess. The house always has an inviting scent because both try to outdo each other in the kitchen. . Food can be the centre of conversation for a family. It can also be the catalyst of therapeutic discourse. Meals have always been a way for a family to bond; it is why so much attention is given to providing a well balanced home cooked meal.
