Stepping Stones Safe Haven offers several services to our clients seeking to develop stability and consistency in their lives and in the lives of their children. Our organization offers a Day Shelter and Night Shelter for homeless mothers with children and individual women. However, preference is given to women with children.
Our Day Shelter is offered to the community from 8:00a to 4:00p seven days a week and is available to clients who have been approved to participate pending a background check as well as various local, state and national registry checks. The safety of our volunteers, clients and staff is of the utmost concern at Stepping Stones Safe Haven Inc. Our Day Shelter offers clients an opportunity to come indoors from the elements. We offer participants spacious and clean shower & restroom facilities as well as a kitchen area for preparing meals. We offer washer and dryer access to those participating in our shelter program. A media center with computer and internet access is available for those individuals searching for employment opportunities.
Our Emergency Night Shelter is held from 4:00p through 8:00a seven nights a week. Our Emergency Night Shelter is reserved for clients who are participating in either the Stepping Stones case management aspect of our program (lasting up to three months) or those who are registered with us for the Safe Haven temporary shelter aspect (lasting up to 45 days)
Our Emergency Night Shelter features all aspects of the Day Shelter with the addition of cots, pillows & linens and blankets provided to accommodate participants with a safe, warm and good night’s sleep.
Depending on the day of the week, various community church organizations have partnered with Stepping Stones Safe Haven Inc. and will host our Emergency Night Shelter on their campuses. Transportation to and from The Haven to those campuses and back to The Haven is provided. Availability is limited and spots cannot be held.
