I love this place, I love to drop the donation and shop there. All employees and volunteers are great, always with a smile on their face. Very kind and helpful. Nice and clean stores and very well organized. Always go home with a treasurer, I go there at least twice a week. Love it.

STEPPING STONES IS THE BEST RUN ORGANIZATION I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. OVER THE YEARS I'VE BEEN TO MANY THRIFT STORES ,BUT SS OFFERS THE MOST DIVERSE SERVICES FOR A NON PROFIT. I SHOP AT THEIR STORES, SHARE COFFEE WITH FRIENDS AT THE COFFEE SHOP THERE AND DONATE ITEMS AND THEY HAVE GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! AND THEY PROVIDE WONDERFUL SERVICES TO MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN. GREAT JOB GUYS!! HOPE TO BE ABLE TO DONATE TIME SOON. P.s. shop there, you'll be surprised at the neat stuff they have...at red barn and clothing store.

My family and I have never had to use their services, but I am part of a community club that donates items and money to Stepping Stones. We recently took a tour of the facility and were so impressed with their services. I am so pleased that we have this facility available in our community.

Stepping Stones is such a wonderful non profit! I love it so much and love being able to be part of it! I had a rough childhood and have seen domestic violence happen as well as drug abuse within my family. At a young age, I have seen my mother be beaten by my father and have seen my mother use illegal drugs. This has happened regularly all my life. I then graduated high school and decided to move out and find a community I can be part of. I just recently moved to Prescott Valley and came across Stepping Stones. It is so wonderful how all the proceeds from the thrift, clothing and coffee house go straight to the shelter. I attended a tour of the shelter and it really "hit home". Seeing the programs they offer, the gifts they give, the atmosphere they provide in the homes and how hard the associates work to help them have a second chance at life brings me soooooo much joy. I donate often and devote my time to this awesome cause. Nothing but great things to this non-profit! Definitely a Stepping Stones Supporter!

The many services Stepping Stones provides to the community are amazing, and the reason that I continue to support this agency. There is a feeling of warmth, recovery, support, and a genuine desire to empower those who wish to change their lives.

Stepping Stones is the best! The people who work there are kind, generous and considerate. The stores are clean and bright. The purpose is what matters the most: a haven or immediate shelter when needed. I have been a customer, a supporter, and a volunteer and they are simply the best.

I've been visiting, donating and shopping at Stepping Stone since 2001, when store was in the old building. I recommended this store to my friends, because it is so much fun to shop there for everyone! You never know what you can find there! I think that people who works there and volunteers are doing Great Job for our Community! Thank you for being there for us!

I first learned about Stepping Stones by shopping at their thrift store in Prescott. I didn't know that all the proceeds went to their domestic violence shelter for local families. It is awesome that every time I shop there, I know that I'm supporting people right here in Prescott. They have great deals on thrift items, most of my wardrobe is from their awesome selection! Thank you for what you do!

My sister was lost. Her kids had been taken away from her, her boyfriend was really abusive even violent. She started doing Heroin, she was sort of a heavy drinker anyway. My husband would not let her live with us because we didn't want any of that crazy around our kids. I finally talked her into going to Stepping Stones. Here it is 6 months later and SS got her a job in their coffee shop, donated a car to her, she has been clean and sober for 6 months and goes to the Guidance Clinic counseling program. SS helped her by letting her stay in their transition apartments. It is so great.

The Stepping Stones shelter not only provides people with a place to stay, but goes above and beyond by helping those who stay there achieve real, permanent change (using tried-and-true, evidence-based techniques). Their thrift stores and coffee shop also make them one of the most self-sufficient nonprofits around, and they are amazingly engaged with the local community. Absolutely fantastic agency!

It's always a joy to shop the Stepping Stones thrift shops. They are heads and tails above most of the other thrift shops in town. All the stores are neat, clean, and well-organized. The staff at all the stores have a real talent for eye-appealing displays, and this makes for an enjoyable shopping experience. Stepping Stones is my absolute favorite thrift shop to visit!

The clerks are always super friendly. The store is always neat and well organized so I can either enjoy shopping leisurely or go in to find what I need and get out quickly if I'm in a hurry. You can't beat the deals!

Stepping Stones is a FABULOUS Place! We start all of our shopping for school, special times, holidays, birthdays, home decorating, crafts, yard items, etc. at Stepping stones! We are spoiled with their coffee and have a hard time drinking anything else! We support them 150% as I, especially, and so glad that this group is here as I was in a very abusive marriage and I didn't have access to any place like this and I jumped on a 18 wheeler with a friend to get out of the situation, leaving my best job ever to just get away. Thank you!

Stepping Stones Agencies is an amazing organization! They have an awesome Coffee Shop in Prescott Valley, with great coffee, nice atmosphere, and the greatest thing is all the money goes to help their women and children shelter. I can't even feel guilty about going for coffee every day when I'm supporting such an amazing cause.

I was concerned about my daughter's safety because of a relationship she was in. I called Stepping Stones and the advocate listened to me and shared about the resources that I can share with her. I'm grateful to know they are always here to help.

I love the work that Stepping Stones does in this community, and couldn't imagine a better place to donate to and support. The organization provides much needed support for women who are looking for a safe place to escape violence, heal, and grow. I'm amazed at the knowledge of their advocates and the amazing resources that they provide 24 hours a day on their hotline. I donate items to their thrift stores and love that all the proceeds stay local!

I am unemployed and Stepping Stones gracefully provided me with interview outfits at one of their thrift stores. I am grateful that they were so kind as to help me out so that I can be successful.

Stepping Stones Agencies educates and empowers women and children involved with Domestic Violence. They truly change lives. I have been a Social Worker for over 15 years and work with most of the non-profit organizations in my area. Stepping Stones goes above and beyond to assist my clients in need. In addition, they are community focused providing job opportunities and training through their social enterprises. Great coffee shop and thrift stores!! Go shop with them where you know your money goes to a terrific cause.
