“Each day I was at Stepping Stones, I grew, but it was hard. It helped me understand things I can change in my life to not go back to the vicious cycle of abuse. I learned how to be healthy again in relationships, to accept myself, and not to have a victim mentality. Thank you for this chance to grow and change.” – Jenny*

Jenny’s story highlights what it means to give a 2021 Qualifying Charitable Organization Tax Credit donation to Stepping Stones. Families right here in our community are finding freedom from abuse and learning how they can live free from all forms of victimization.

Arizona offers a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on your AZ state return by making a donation to a qualified charitable organization of any amount (up to $400 filing single or $800 filing joint).
