STEPPING STONES

Stepping Stones is a simple concept of meeting young moms, baking muffins and enjoying one another’s company while their children are cared for by our excellent on site childcare. Volunteers work alongside moms as they bake, followed by a useful life skills discussion and guest speaker from the community. If you need a ride to to this morning program, please let us know!
