sheltervolunteerThe Stepping Stones Shelter Program provides emergency shelter, housing assistance, and referral services. Shelter locations are: 1920 South Broadway and 1518 Stout Road.

Combined, the two shelters have five furnished apartments for individuals or families. During their stay, residents work closely with shelter staff to secure affordable housing, to find or maintain employment, and to access resources to become self-sufficient.

In addition, the Shelter Program can provide one-time direct assistance to people in emergency financial need when funding is available. Some services we offer include help with gas to get to work, help with the cost of needed medications, and referrals to other community services that may be able to assist you as well.
