Home for the Holidays
Give the gift of safety. Give the gift of opportunity. Give the gift of home!
This holiday season, support Home for the Holidays with StepStones
Every young person should have a place to call home and the crisis of youth homelessness disproportionately impacts the youth from the foster care system that StepStones serves. But with your support of StepStones’ housing programs, we all make a difference!
Over the past two years, StepStones has identified that safe and stable housing is the essential foundation for long-term success for the youth we serve.
That’s why StepStones’ Home for the Holidays initiative is raising funds to help house youth this holiday season!
Donate today OR share the gift of home with friends & family with an honorary donation.
When you make a gift to a friend or family member, you can choose to send them a Home for the Holidays e-card so they are alerted that you made a contribution in their honour.
If you prefer, you can also make a gift of securities with our Share Your Shares program too!
There is no better gift than providing a vulnerable young person with a home and a much deserved opportunity to reach their inherent potential!
