What Survivors Say

"I felt very, very cared for and the [advoate] allowed me the space to feel what I needed to feel and were very present with me."

"Just knowing they were there was helpful."

“This place and the staff here have saved my life, literally.”

“I am currently training to be an advocate. I hope I can impact survivors lives as other Stepping Stones advocates have impacted mine.”
