Cold Lake and Bonnyville
People experience abuse in many different ways and process it in many different ways. Staying at a shelter is not always a need or an option. Stepping Stones believes that we are here to support women in making their own choices in their lives. We are here to listen, advocate, inform and support you. The choice of what you need is always up to you, but you do not need to go through this alone.
Our Community Support Program has offices in both Cold Lake and Bonnyville, and is meant to provide emotional support, advocacy, and referrals to those who may be experiencing abuse or are just looking for more information.
As staying in a shelter is not always an option, our Community Support workers are available to meet one-on-one both in office and/or in the community.
This program is confidential, free of charge and there is no need for a referral.

Coffee and Connect
We invite members of our community to come into our Bonnyville office for some conversation and coffee on the first Wednesday of each month. Each session will feature an activity, which attendees are welcome to participate in. This program is designed to help individuals establish healthy friendships in our community.
We revamped the Better Way program, which will launch in September of 2022 to serve both men and women. This program will continue to provide participants with the education, skills, and resources they require to make the necessary changes in their relationships and resolve conflicts peacefully.
This program focuses on self-and-female empowerment to increase self-worth, self-esteem, and work on both soft skills and hard skills. Sessions can include physical and mental health, wellness, managing money, healthy relationships, sexual health, and more.
