Learn more about Stepping Stone and our commitment to eliminating all homelessness in Canada by partnering with communities across the country in the national change effort, Built For Zero.
Eliminating Homelessness with Housing-Focused Programs
In partnership with the County of Wellington, The Drop-In Centre started the Stepping Stone Shelter in 1985 to provide beds to those without shelter.
Today, homeless shelters across Canada have been transitioning from traditional emergency shelters to housing-focused services, in an effort to end chronic homelessness through long-term housing solutions.
