Stay Safe!   Be Well!

Winter Haven remains closed for 2021 

For the past nine years,  Winter Haven at 1518 Stout Road was open as an overnight shelter from Nov. 15 through March 31 for homeless adults. Instead of an overnight shelter, it is currently being used as an apartment-style shelter for two households.

Faced with the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Stepping Stones had to make the difficult decision to change how we were serving homeless individuals to keep everyone safe. We have limited funding to put local individuals up in hotel rooms during colder nights. Depending on the weather and a marked increased in the number of individuals and households in need, however, we may not have enough funding to meet the demand. 

Although there is a waiting list for both our Stout Road and South Broadway shelters, homeless households can contact Stepping Stones at  715-235-2920 or shelter@steppingstonesdc.org for guidance if shelter is needed.
