Dear Friends,

Stepping Stone provides crucial programs and services to sex workers throughout the Halifax Region. We have been an integral part of the community for over 20 years.

Individuals we support, most of whom are involved in the street trade, continue to report extraordinarily high levels of violence including rapes, beatings, assaults. Cases of missing and murdered women is an unfortunate reality in our community. In addition, these people are
dealing with issues surrounding poor health, poverty and marginalization.

You can help.

In this past year, two of our one-time funding projects (projects that are only funded for one year) have ended. Our core funding has not been increased in over a decade. Yet we continue to address the challenges and needs of our clients with determination.

We need your support.

You can ensure that the individuals we support continue to be provided with the support and services needed to ensure the health and safety of all.

You can donate goods: (to support our street outreach program and drop in centre). Goods that are essential to our programs and services include:

Gas vouchers


Cleaning Supplies

Granola Bars

Individual puddings

Plastic spoons

Paper Bags

Coffee Whitener

Drinks (cans of pop, juice boxes)

These can be dropped off at our location between 1 and 4pm throughout the week. In some cases, we will be able to pick these items up. Please send an email to and we will advise you of our drop off location.

To make an on-line donation you can visit our website at and click on the “Donate Now” tab.

On behalf of all of us, thank you for your support.

Executive Director
