Permanent Supportive Housing

Our Programs#

Hope Housing

Stepping Stones’ Hope Housing program provides permanent housing and on-going support services for 2 families, each with a disabled head of household. This 10-year partnership with the Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless has been a lifeline for these families. Through the extraordinary efforts of program coordinator, Jill Hurd, and the support of the community, including the staff at their neighborhood schools, the Hope Housing program has helped these families remain together and stably housed.

Housing Initiative Program (HIP)

Stepping Stones Shelter provides service coordination for six formerly homeless families placed into permanent housing under Montgomery County’s Housing Initiative Program (HIP). Stepping Stones’ service coordinators provide referrals to needed services in the community and make sure the families pay their rent and utilities on time to ensure that they remain housed.
