Community or Constituency Served
St. Stephen's offers services to individuals and families at risk of losing their housing or who are experiencing homelessness. We operate 2 year-round shelters for 100 individuals where people can stay in a safe place while accessing additional services to secure stable housing. Our Street Outreach team works with people living in places not meant for human habitation. They help people navigate the various crises that occur while lacking stable housing and meet people where they are at to address immediate basic needs for safety and survival outside while assisting them in their process towards permanent housing. We have a variety of adult and family housing programs with comprehensive supportive services to help prevent homelessness and/or ensure their experience with homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring.
