Help for Women in Recovery
YWCA’s Steppingstone Supportive Living Program offers hope – and proven results – for women in recovery who are making the transition to independent living. Compassionate staff help women take responsibility for their lives and the difficult work of recovery.
Since no women should have to choose between her child or receiving help for her addiction, YWCA’s program allows women to remain with their children (ages 12 and under) while in recovery.
Each year, the program provides housing and treatment services to nearly 80 women.
In a safe, supportive, and structured environment, women maintain sobriety and achieve a healthy lifestyle free from addiction.
