New beginnings can be exciting and difficult at the same time. But for families at Stepping Stones, the hard work can yield life changing results.

  • 98% reported they feel their safety improved, even after leaving Stepping Stones.
  • 100% reported they have an increased knowledge of domestic violence and its effect on their lives.
  • 98% reported they are completing their goals.
  • 100% reported they know how to plan for their continued safety.
  • 100% reported they feel confident they will remain free from abuse when they leave SSA.
