Today, the Stepping Stone Board of Directors would like to take the opportunity to celebrate and thank our staff.
The arrival of Coronavirus created immediate challenges for our staff, leading them to quickly work to put measures in place to protect all of the individuals in our care. Our residential program, our outpatient program and our sober residences all needed new policies and protections. And all of this came at a time when our clients needed additional help dealing with their concerns for safety, and the safety of their families.
These past 6 months prove what we have always known but don’t say often enough: The Stepping Stone staff is the best of the best. They show up every day and go above and beyond to support our clients. They also work tirelessly to ensure that our services continue to be available for those seeking help, despite these extraordinary circumstances.
See a few personal messages of gratitude from the members of our Board of Directors below.
