Stepping Stone Emergency Housing

Stepping Stone Emergency Housing is Anoka County's only youth & adult homeless shelter, and one of Minnesota's most trustworthy non-profit organizations. In a dormitory-style setting, Stepping Stone provides a primary, yet temporary home to 66 men and women, as young as 18 years old.

All residents, regardless of their time spent at Stepping Stone, have their basic needs met. We provide a bed to sleep, linens, three meals a day, shower, laundry facilities, and clothes and toiletries, when needed.

On average, residents live at Stepping Stone for 90 days. However, some stay less time and some stay more, depending on their need. During their time here, our Shelter Advocates make sure that their day-to-day, shelter needs are met. On the other hand, our Case Manager meets with each resident one-on-one to develop a comprehensive Individual Goal Plan (IGP), ensuring that the resident' needs for leaving Stepping Stone are also met. The IGP determines the ultimate goal of each resident and defines the attainable goals in which to achieve their goal.
