Families at Stepping Stones have taken the first big step to saying NO MORE to abuse in their lives. Whether they live in our shelter or meet with advocates for one-on-one support, they begin the hard work of living free from abuse. Adults complete an anonymous survey upon exit to provide feedback. From Jan 1, 2022 – Dec 31, 2022, those who participated shared:

  • 100% reported they have increased knowledge of domestic violence and its effect on their life.
  • 100% reported they are (re)gaining control of their lives.
  • 97% reported they have increased understanding of their legal rights.
  • 98% reported their safety has improved, even after leaving Stepping Stones.
