Volunteers - Before You Begin

Volunteers are vital to the success of our Stepping Stones social enterprises and services and are always needed at all of our locations. Volunteer Positions are available at our Thrift Store, Recovery and Support Group Specialty Bookstore, Administrative Office, and Step One Community Center. Additionally, we have AMAZING people volunteering in our emergency shelter, transitional living program, and on our Helpline. The guidelines for volunteering in our advocacy program are a bit more rigid than at our other locations. Fingerprint clearance, background checks, CPR/First Aid training, and a 52-hour orientation/training program must be completed before you can begin volunteering at shelter. However, we are always looking for people who are the right fit to help provide these services for our community.

If that is something you’re interested in, please print and complete the Volunteer Application below. Contact Traci at 928.772.4184 or by email for more information about all volunteer opportunities.
