The Stepping Stones Shelter Program provides emergency shelter, housing assistance, and referral services. 

Our Shelters

Stepping Stones has three fully-furnished shelters - two homes with a combined 5 apartments for families, and the Cairn House, a 20-bed shelter for individuals. 


During their stay, generally 6-8 weeks, residents work closely with shelter staff to:

  • secure permanent and affordable housing

  • find or maintain employment

  • pursue educational goals

  • access resources to become self-sufficient


As funds are available, Stepping Stones provides housing assistance for rent and security deposits as well as referrals to low-income housing options.
