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 both Day 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, Monday through Saturday to guests who have been approved to participate pending a background check. 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 warming meals. We also offer washer and dryer access to our guests. 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 is provided. Availability is limited and spots cannot be held.
For the safety of our guests and volunteers, we are unable to serve individuals:
Under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs
With a history of severe criminal acts or violent offense(s),
Who are registered sex offenders
With physical or mental health needs beyond the scope of our services
Clients must be able to be independent in a community type environment and adhere to shelter rules.
We’ve partnered with several churches in our community to provide the emergency shelters for women in need. Explore our current partners below.
