Stepping into action to find work for the homeless

To help homeless people find work, three Anoka County groups teamed up to bring classes to Stepping Stone Emergency Housing in Anoka.

Rather than creating another obstacle to get the homeless the resources they desperately need and may not be fully aware of, Stepping Stone worked with the Anoka County Workforce Center, Metro North Adult Basic Education and the Anoka County Library to bring the services to the people who need them most.

The pilot program, which began in September and will be funded at least until June 2016, is being called Step Into Action.
