“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.”
David Stamps, Center for Organizational Development

“Being part of Stepping Stone and on the board of directors gave me the opportunity to see the best in people.  The clients at Stepping Stone have shown me that life may give you some hard knocks but with the help and compassion they receive at Stepping Stone, you can brush yourself off and start again. I am very proud to say I am affiliated with a great organization.”

Sheryl Carlson, Former Board Member

“I believe in the importance of the work that Stepping Stone does to provide emergency shelter and critical support services for individuals who are homeless and striving for self-sufficiency. I want to be part of something that is making a difference and having real impact in my community. Stepping Stone is the only emergency shelter in Anoka County and the services they provide in addition to dignified shelter is changing lives for the better. It’s rewarding to be even a small part of this impact.”

Kelly Matter, Former Board Member
