Stepping Stones

The Stepping Stones Fund helps individuals served by The MENTOR Network through grants for job training and readiness activities, vocational and higher education and other programs that lead to self-sufficiency and independence. Whether they are transitioning out of the foster care system, receiving supports in one of our programs for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities or working to regain their independence following a brain or spinal cord injury, grants from the Stepping Stones Fund empower those we serve to achieve their dreams.

Applications for the Stepping Stones Fund are considered and announced on a rolling basis throughout the fiscal year beginning on October 1.
