Who Qualifies for help?

Persons applying for assistance must be a residents of the Weld RE4 School District

Spanish interpreters available. Please let us know if that would be helpful when you contact us.

What to Expect During Your Intake Appointment

You will need to explain your financial assistance situation and brainstorm possible long-term solutions.  You should be prepared to discuss issues such as monthly income and expenses and alternate housing options.
You and a Stepping Stones Board Member will review your application.  They will also make a copy of your photo ID and eviction/shut-off notice.
If it is determined Stepping Stones can help your situation, the board member will call your utility company or landlord to verify the amount of money owed.

How long does financial assistance last?

If you qualify for assistance, a check will be made out to the landlord or utility company. Please keep in mind Stepping Stones is able to help clients through a difficult temporary situation.  If a client's problem is more long-term, then Stepping Stones may not be able to assist.  In those cases, referrals would be made to other agencies better suited to assist the situation.

Times Have Been Tough Through COVID

I wanted to take a moment to reach out and express my gratitude for helping my family with our Xcel bill, as times have been tough through COVID. Thank you for your prayers, for meeting with me, and for all you do to support families - especially those of us who make "too much," but "not enough." Your generosity helped us, and one day, I hope that I find myself in a position to pay it forward. My sincere gratitude to you and all of those who make Stepping Stones happen!
