Our Life Skills Advocate, Justin Torguson, describes what Stepping Stone means to residents and to himself personally. Hear his passion as he describes our mission and the experience of homelessness.

The biggest surprise about working at Stepping Stone is the diversity and unique stories that each resident has. It doesn’t matter your background, it doesn’t matter where you started, it can happen to anyone. This makes our staff realize how grateful they are for their own life experiences. How to be thankful for the support you have in your own life.

A lot of our residents have to deal with mental health and addiction, so ask questions. Ask those that are experiencing homelessness about their stories. Give them hope.

The residents who succeed are amazing. They come in rock bottom and find a future. They find a home. They are empowered to move forward and make changes towards the right path.
