A Wider Circle’s efforts focus on the provision of basic need items, workforce development, wraparound support, and neighborhood revitalization. These four components work in concert to create lasting change in the lives of those we serve. A Wider Circle says no to nobody! Anyone in need of help can find it here. In addition to all of the individuals and families that call us, more than 500 government, social service, and nonprofit agencies regularly contact us for help in serving their clients.
Stepping Stones Shelter Inc. provides a continuum of services (emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, and post-shelter support) to homeless families with children in order to move them from crisis to a stable home environment. By offering food, shelter and supportive services in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, Stepping Stones provides hope for the future, strengthens families, and promotes self-sufficiency. We achieve our mission by providing:
- Case management services to connect homeless families to needed services in the community, and to help families develop income and housing solutions;
- Employment counselors who work one-on-one to provide intense employment and career counseling;
- Tutoring for the children and GED tutoring, if needed, for the adults;
- Post-shelter support for families that have moved on from the shelter but still need help with referrals and in-kind donations in order to remain housed
