Stepping Stones is probably the best shelter I have been too in the past years of being homeless, I may only be 20 years old, but I know that it isn't the best situation to be in and it is one of the hardest, when you get to the bottom of chain and become homeless, I know that it is really hard to get back on your feet, and try for a second chance and know that there is a second change is huge! I was at stepping stones, about 5 months ago, homeless, could sleep on a bench or a box any longer, so I had called stepping stones, I had a wait of maybe 4 days, and got in that Monday, which was great! they helped with so much, finding a job, housing, keep your mind busy, etc... it was a strict "home." but it was a home for me. they help me, stay ALIVE. before I was able to get in at SSEH. I couldn't eat, never had money... and starving your self while being pregnant is not good at all.. but I couldn't eat, I would go days with out eating, or sleep. just so I could live through every moment for my unborn daughter I was carrying. and now my daughter is a month old and healthy. the doctor said "your daughter is the healthiest baby we have seen!" which all I can say is Thank-you to the Stepping Stones Staff!!
