How Steppingstone Helps
The number of deaths from drug overdoses in Massachusetts increased steadily from 2010 for several years. However, the commitment and resources of Massachusetts Government and providers such as Steppingstone are beginning to make an impact. In the past two years there has been a slight decrease in overdose deaths. Every life saved is an immense achievement. Steppingstone remains committed to offering effective peer recovery support and treatment to help hi-risk individuals.
According to HUD’s AHAR Report to Congress, from 2017 to 2018, Massachusetts experienced the highest increase in homelessness Nationwide. The five states with the largest increases were MA, Arizona, Texas, Washington and New York.
Steppingstone and Fall River’s homeless resources are dedicated to assisting homeless people in our Community. Steppingstone operates Fall River’s homeless shelter for individuals and provides approximately 100 units of supportive housing and an array of homeless services.
