Thank You!

We are tremendously grateful to our financial and in-kind donors for thinking of Stepping Stones during the holiday season.  We were blessed with an abundance of gifts, winter wear, gift cards, non-perishable food, candy and baked goods, holiday décor, lunches, and dinners. We couldn't help homeless families move forward without the kind and thoughtful support of our supporters.

Youth Volunteers & SSL Hours

3 SSL hours can be earned by a youth volunteer for providing a meal (lunch or dinner).   You must sign up to provide a meal and fulfill the request as described in the sign up below.  You will need to provide a completed SSL/Community Service form to Helen Domenici at Helen@steppingstonesshelter.org.  It can take up to 5 days for the form to be signed and returned. Sign up below to make dinner or lunch. 

Lunch: https://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=s.signup&urlid=409044fa5ae29a4fa7-lunches&view=calendar 

Dinner: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409044fa5ae29a4fa7-dinner 

All other off-site activities that a youth volunteer seeks to gain SSL hours must be pre-approved in advance by Helen Domenici, Director of Community Engagement at Helen@steppingstonesshelter.org.  Examples of off-site activities that require pre-approval include donation drives, baking, and knitting, etc.  

Students age 15 years or older can also earn SSL hours by providing in-shelter tutoring, child care, or playtime with the kids. Due to COVID-19, these activities have been suspended.


Stepping Up With Laughter Was a Great Success!

Thank you to those who joined us for some laughter and fun and to our generous sponsors who made the event possible. Check out this video to see all the things that attendees and sponsors are making possible at Stepping Stones:


We had the honor of working with our past families to create this educational video on homelessness in Montgomery County sponsored by Montgomery County Media.
