Volunteer: You Can Change A Life
There are so many opportunities to help the Stepping Stones organization and the families we support.
The Finance Team monitors the cash flow, prepares the budget, and monthly reports of expense and income. There are many ways to help: record keeping, investment monitoring, preparing materials for audit reports and preparing tax filings.
The Set-Up Team prepares apartments for new clients. You can help in aiding in the move and procurement of furniture and household items.
The Events Team develops and coordinates all fundraising events such as the Annual Spring Tea and Golf Outing. The Events Team needs volunteers for event committees and chairs for ad hoc activities such as craft fairs, car washes and bake sales. Help is also needed to write thank you letters for attendees and corporate donors.
The Mentor Team supports and provides continuing education for mentors. The Mentor Team is responsible for meeting weekly with our families to discuss all objectives to reach the clients’ short and long term goals. Two mentors are assigned to each family working towards the common goal of securing stable housing and learning financial responsibility through budgeting. Our quest is for women to become self sufficient, by learning financial responsibility and securing stable housing. Please consider being a mentor.
