Stepping Stones is a 10-bed group home for girls ages 13-18 with low self-esteem, loss of interest, experimentation with drugs or alcohol, poor academics, bad attitude, disrespect, poor adjustment to change and a lack of accountability. Stepping Stones has a licensed counselor and “qualified staff” who work with the girls on their emotional growth issues through daily groups and daily reflections.

While at Stepping Stones girls participate in a variety of activities including hiking, sleigh riding, skiing, swimming, fishing, camping and boating. The teens learn basic life skills to help them grow into mature, responsible adults. These skills include, cooking, balancing a budget, baking, caring for children, house keeping, emotional growth components, gardening and an understanding of family dynamics.

The girls live in a home-style atmosphere where they learn to care for their personal needs while attending a public school located nearby. Although it is optional, in-home therapy is available.
