Providing financial help in the Weld RE-4 school district to prevent homelessness

At Stepping Stones of Windsor, we believe everyone is entitled to decent, stable and affordable housing.

We provide financial help in the Weld RE-4 school district (Severance, Windsor & West Greeley) to prevent homelessness by providing financial assistance, education and referrals in times of need.
We provide assistance directly to a client’s landlord or utility company after an eviction or utility shutoff notice. Our resources are limited, so we rely on grants and generous community support. Stepping Stones of Windsor is a faith-based 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2004.

Our clients are our Weld RE-4 neighbors

Stepping Stones recipients attend our churches.  Their children attend our schools.  We see them on Main Street, at the park, at the grocery store.  They range from young adults to senior citizens.  We help large families, single parents, and adults without children.  Many of our clients have a college education or are attending school.  Some of our clients have moved to Windsor from other areas.  However, many were raised right here and are working hard to remain in our beloved community.

2021 Stepping Stones by the Numbers

 

stepping stones of windsor 2021 reportFor Stepping Stones of Windsor, 2021 was more ‘normal’ than 2020. In 2021, we provided $36,093 to help 45 households with rent payments and $16,204 to help pay past-due utility bills for 42 households, ultimately helping 191 individuals stay in their homes. We were able to help almost twice the number of households we had helped in 2020.

Our all-volunteer board put in 875 hours in 2021 to ensure clients were served well. We continue to rely on small local and federal grants as well as our very generous local donors. Our expenses continued to be less than 5% (website maintenance, office expenses, liability insurance) allowing us to pass at least 95% of our funds to clients in need.

In 2022, we hope to ensure that residents in the Severance, West Greeley, and Windsor communities (the area served by the RE-4 School District) know about Stepping Stones of Windsor and how to get help when they need it. Please let us know if you can help spread the word in any way.
