Volunteering at Stepping Stones serves a real Community need for Nashua's homeless youth. Beginning to volunteer in May of last year, I found many ways to help including organizing a room with items for outfitting the first apartments, making beds, doing laundry, and occasionally taking a turn at the front desk.
It has been so rewarding to be part of a successful program that has helped youth continue their education, find housing, and employment.
The kids who come here want to get off the streets and establish a viable life for themselves.
I have often heard volunteers from various organizations say they get back so much and I agree. I have a renewed sense of community, made new friends, and just love my time at Stepping Stones.
