MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER

Thank you for visiting our website! Stride is a family owned business currently in its 2nd generation. The remarkable story is that Stride was inspired by my son, Joey, who was born with hydrocephalus; a sever disability that prevented him from walking, talking, and caused him to be blind. Joey died at age 7, but his legacy is Stride, guiding our family to work with and for Special Needs Adults. 

As an employer of individuals with special needs, we motivate and encourage our employees to maximize their own personal and professional abilities. We are nationally recognized for our brand names, selling quality office products which are packed, assembled, labeled, and/or shipped by the best workforce available.
