Stepping Stones Outreach Ministries is a grassroots outreach ministry which serves rural Champaign county. The cornerstone of our ministry is a choice food pantry as well as a free, Friday night community meal. We also offer a wide variety of classes ranging from budgeting to line dancing. We work with Champaign County DJFS to provide classes for qualification for SNAP benefits, but our classes are open to the public as well. Stepping Stones also operates a free store which offers items that have been donated such as furniture, household goods, and clothing. In the near future we plan to have a laundry facility which will be available free of charge to individuals in need who either earn credits by participating in our classes or who do community service with us. Stepping Stones provides financial assistance for items not supported by other agencies such as water bill and the purchase of birth certificates. Stepping Stones has been in existence for four years, and we are currently staffed with only one, full-time paid employee and two full-time volunteers. Additionally staffing is accomplished through the management of community services workers through the local DJFS and the court systems.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will be assisting with the grant writing process by initially creating a system for retrieving data from the past two years that can be used to support grants, and then establishing a system to capture this data on an ongoing basis. There will also be opportunities to assist in the actual writing of grants. An additional project would be to also establish a system to track in-kind donations which will also be used in the grant writing process to show matching dollars. There is currently no established system for locating this information so this position will add great value to our organization and put us in a better position to write and win grants.
