Located in Muncie, IN, Project Stepping Stone provides temporary housing for families while they search and prepare for a stable home.

Learn more about the families that PSS helps!


Project Stepping Stone began in September 1989 when the congregations of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and Lutheran Church of the Cross recognized a need within the community for free temporary housing for families who find themselves in a sudden financial crisis. They started with one house and, within three years, expanded their ministry with the addition of two more houses. In 2011 First Presbyterian Church joined this mission outreach.

Project Stepping Stone is NOT emergency shelter; wait times can take several months. As of September 2023 we do not have any openings and do not expect for the foreseeable future.
