Stepping Stone provides community based housing with support. Community based housing is where ‘we’ live and homeless accommodation is where ‘they’ live. Stepping Stone aims to bridge the gap between ‘us’ and ‘them’ by providing a service which is completely unique in the homeless sector.

What we do:

Stepping Stone provides affordable accommodation to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We own properties across Dublin and offer a fixed term lease with support. We work with each tenant towards a sustainable, independent long-term home. We do this in partnership with Dublin Local Authorities and homeless and advocacy services. Stepping Stone seeks to deliver an innovative housing solution in a professional, client centred and honest way. We set out to ensure that those we work for have access to appropriate and safe accommodation and are given practical supports in an open way.

We provide each tenant with an individualised support plan based on a personalised assessment. Through this support we aim to enhance a person’s tenancy and underpin their future successes in accommodation. Our long term goal is to see our tenants move onto ‘something better’.

It is our ambition to continue to deliver and develop our meaningful and practical service to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We do not keep people in homelessness and homeless accommodation but emphasise community and inclusion.

 

 

Stepping Stone has relied on its supporters to help deliver services to homeless and vulnerable individuals and families since the early 1970s. In keeping with this strong tradition, we are looking to create a Friends of Stepping Stone database. This will allow the charity to call on the skills and talents of our Friends and benefit from their advice and expertise.
