Social Enterprises

Our Social Enterprises

Stepping Stones’ social enterprises include Stepping Stones Thrift stores, Step One Community Center, and Next Chapter Recovery Bookstore. Shopping and donating at these locations means your money and goods stay local and impact families right here in our community.

Stepping Stones has worked diligently to move from a “charity” posture and “entitlement” mentality to a “consumer-driven” posture and “high-impact service” mentality in the way we run our businesses and provide services. We believe this agency-wide shift in posture has created a culture of possibility that has a profoundly positive impact on those individual adults and children that come to us for help.

Our social enterprise services provide several areas of paid job training venues for adults in our advocacy programs each year. They also provide affordable training/meeting space to community-based service providers. And most importantly, a sustainable revenue stream to assure that all of our services are available to our community 24/7/365.

Stepping Stones Thrift

Since 1997, your thrift store donations have provided hundreds of paid job training opportunities and supported the operations of our 24/7/365 safe shelter and advocacy services for adults and children in our West Yavapai County communities.

We gratefully accept your generous thrift store donations of furniture, home décor/housewares, working appliances, office supplies, tools, sporting goods, clothing, and accessories. We also take cars, boats, etc. as long as they have a valid title. If you aren’t using it anymore, we’ll take it!

We are also happy to pick up your furniture donations – and you don’t have to haul it out to the curb! Call our Donation Center at 928.759.0225 to schedule a pick up of your large furniture items.


** Please Note: Masks are encouraged to enter and shop our stores during this time. Thank you for helping us stay open and supporting local families by wearing a mask and social distancing while shopping!**
