So many lives have been touched and improved by virtue of contact with Stepping Stone – primarily the clients we have served, but also the staff, volunteers, Board of Directors, and the community at large.
Will you help us with our important work?
Since 1976, Stepping Stone has focused on providing recovery services for the San Diego LGBT community. Over its 39 year history, Stepping Stone has helped thousands of men and women recover from a seemingly hopeless life of alcoholism, drug addiction, and co-occurring disorders and situations that often accompany those issues.
We have so many success stories to talk about - like the following:
FROM DESPAIR TO HOPE
I'm raising money for the most amazing cause and I really want you to Sponsor me. Stepping Stone has been a crucial part in my journey to sobriety. Before arriving in Stepping Stone my life was filled with fear and shame. My life had reached a point where I didn't care whether I lived or died. In February of 2015 I came to be accepted into the program and was received with open arms by both its community and staff. My time at Stepping Stone was spent getting rid of old behaviours that kept me in a world of despair and establishing new ones that would allow me to become a successful and productive member of society. I laughed, I cried but most importantly I grew both emotionally and spiritually. I have recently completed its in-patient program and have transitioned into one of its sober livings. I am currently attending San Diego City College and am actively volunteering and doing service work within the AA, NA and CMA programs. I will forever be grateful to all of Stepping Stone for the life they have helped me reclaim. I know firsthand the kind of miracles that come out of those gates after finishing the 6 month program. Please help me by donating today so that the miracles continue and anyone who was as lost as me can find the stepping stone back to a life filled with hope, love, and purpose.
We are grateful to receive some funding from the County of San Diego to provide our services, but it does not cover all of our costs. We rely on outside support to continue our mission.
Thank you for supporting Stepping Stone. You are the heroes that are making a difference for our 31 residents, and allowing us to march smartly and confidently into the future.
