Special to the Tribune

In their continued support for both Arizona Women's Education and Employment and Stepping Stones, members of the Prescott branch of the American Association of University Women brought two carloads of donated clothing to its April meeting.

The meeting focused on volunteer opportunities in Yavapai County, including AWEE, Stepping Stones, Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Granite Peak Neighborhood Education Project.

AWEE and Stepping Stones, in particular, share a common mission with AAUW: to empower women through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

Stepping Stones and AAUW even share a unique history that dates from the 1979 national AAUW convention in Albuquerque where the topic of endangered women and children was raised.

The Prescott branch took up the issue and created a survey to determine the need for a temporary refuge for women and children. The survey suggested that, indeed, there was a need in Yavapai County for such a shelter.

AAUW members located Villa de Fidelis (House of Faith) in Glendale, which helped purchase a house in Prescott; West Yavapai Guidance Clinic agreed to manage it. Faith House in Prescott became Stepping Stones, and has served families ever since. Stepping Stones Thrift and clothing stores have locations now in both Prescott and Prescott Valley.
