“Our supporters are wonderful people who see a desperate need for helping those experiencing homelessness. They give generously because they care deeply. They know that, ‘When you speak from your heart, other hearts will listen and answer’. Our donors’ generosity has helped many people make positive changes in their lives.”
“Serving on the Stepping Stone Emergency Housing board has given me an opportunity to learn more about the big picture needs of our community members who are currently without a permanent home. The word ‘homelessness’ has an emptiness to it – I prefer to use the language ‘I’m currently not living in my own home.’ To find a pathway to that home is what Stepping Stone is about. Our residents are encouraged to stay for 90 days or longer in order to reduce the chaos in their lives. Our staff partners with the residents to help them develop a plan for their future. A future that will include the phrase, ‘I’m going home’.”
Support individuals 18 and over who are experiencing homelessness by accelerating the growth of available shelter that brings education and solutions to our homeless response.
