Providing those who are victims of domestic violence, services including 24/7 crisis lines & intervention,
temporary shelter, clothing & food, transitional housing, counseling, support groups, and advocacy.
We, the members of The Stepping Stone Shelter for Women, alert to the problems of domestic violence existing at all socioeconomic levels in American society and, perpetuating itself from generation to generation, associate ourselves to work toward its elimination and, in particular, to offer refuge and services to its victims in our area.
The Stepping Stone Shelter for Women, Inc. attempts to respond constructively to the victims of domestic violence and to assist them in living within the community without violence.
It is the philosophy of The Stepping Stone Shelter for Women, Inc. that family violence is a complex and serious problem, not only to the individual family involved, but also for the community. We view the problem as cyclical in nature; the solution requiring that the intervention process be one of education and understanding by each mate as to why the family, as a unit, is in trouble.
