We offer several invaluable services to our residents, including job search assistance, one-on-one case management, and educational opportunities.
Step into Actionis a program developed in collaboration with:
Anoka County Library (Library)
Anoka County Workforce Center (WFC)
Metro North Adult Basic Education (ABE)
The Library’s outreach to Stepping Stone’s residents opened a door so that the WFC, ABE, and the Library could pursue a pilot project for a long-term program to serve Anoka County’s homeless. These partners have an established record of providing training to unemployed or underemployed residents of Anoka County.
Step into Action provides:
Job search training
