Mission Statement

"Providing transitional housing and supportive services to youth 16-20 years old who are experiencing homelessness"

To provide a supportive community where young people experiencing homelessness can develop skills to live independently.

Stepping Stones is a non-profit, independent organization that offers transitional housing for young people 16-20 years old who are experiencing homelessness. We are located in Bloomington, Indiana.

Description

Stepping Stones incorporated in 2004 and is a transitional housing and supportive services program for youth aged 16-20 that are experiencing homelessness. They become homeless due to some type of domestic abuse (physical, sexual or substance abuse); family dysfunction and breakdown; inadequate housing that cannot accommodate them; or they have been abandoned, kicked out of or have left and are not allowed to return to their home of origin.

Since we started operations, our Supportive Housing Program has served 33 youth and our youth outreach has reached over a dozen youth in the past year, including at-risk youth and those on our waiting list. The program provides services to our residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for up to two years. In a living situation analogous to foster care or group home living, we provide meals, mentoring, and case management; plus, they are given a home.
