Whether shelter is needed for a few nights or a few months, all Stepping Stone residents are treated with dignity and respect and have their basic needs met.
This means a bed and linens to call their own, three meals per day, showers, laundry facilities, and even clothing and toiletries when needed.
But that’s not all.
Through our first-of-its-kind programs and services, they work with each resident one-on-one to identify the cause of their homelessness — for example, lack of education, unemployment or under employment, need for affordable housing, making positive personal choices — and help them develop a personalized plan to move toward self-sufficiency. Working with a case manager, each resident completes an Individual Goal Plan (IGP) that identifies their ultimate goal and breaks it down into attainable steps to reach that goal.

The Dwelling Place was founded in 1998 by Diane Stores and was born out of her passion to make sure women and children had a safe place of refuge where they could find rest, hope and healing. While living in an abusive marriage she left many times during the night with her children. Unable to find a safe place for them they would have no option but to return to their home. Once she was able to leave this situation, she wanted to do what she could to make sure other women did not have to face this challenge.
The Dwelling Place opened in a single-family home on the east side of St. Paul and then in 2001, received the use of two St. Paul homes, providing housing for seven women and their 10 children. In 2013, The Dwelling Place purchased and started renovations on two duplexes in the north metro. Since that time, they have consolidated all housing to the North Metro and now have the equivalent of eight single family homes with capacity to support up to 57 women and their children at one time.For more information visit tdpmn.org
