Wish List

The Stepping Stones Emergency Shelter creates a safe and nurturing environment for families seeking to live free from family violence.

However, we don’t support this mission alone.

Many active community individuals, groups and organizations who believe in making a difference in the community have joined with us.

Thank you for your interest and helping us meet the needs of those we serve!

Please contact Cori at 928.772.4184 or hope@SteppingStonesAZ.org for more information.
