What is Stepping Stones?

In 1980, Stepping Stones opened its doors as Northern Arizona’s first shelter for women and their children. We provide a blend of therapeutic & advocacy responses to women and their children seeking help from many forms of abuse, victimization and homelessness.

Stepping Stones provides:

  • Free 24/7 emergency shelter
  • Transitional housing
  • Educational and support groups
  • Job training
  • 24/7 live HelpLine
  • Guidance and support from specially trained advocates
All of these resources are supported by our generous community partners, donors, volunteers and the Stepping Stones Social Enterprise Projects.
