Letter From The Founder


Welcome to Stepping Stones Community Services, LLC! My name is LaKesha Reid, and I’m the founder and CEO of both Stepping Stones and our companion non-profit agency, S.E.L.F., Inc. Our mission is to provide individuals and families with the tools and resources they need to achieve their goals, regardless of their circumstances.

At Stepping Stones, we understand that life can be challenging, especially in the face of inflation, food shortages, and mental health and addiction issues. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing a range of resources and training programs to help families address these challenges and overcome them.

Together with the services of S.E.L.F., Inc., our long-term vision is to create a comprehensive program where families can come to receive a variety of services all in one place. Our goal is to have a Stepping Stones Childcare Center, where parents can drop off their children and attend CBRF, CNA, and CPR classes upstairs. We also offer trauma-informed groups for parents to learn how to heal from their internal trauma, preventing it from being passed on to their children. On weekends, we envision offering mediation sessions, parenting classes, and family strengthening classes where parents and children can learn together. We also plan to teach children about gardening, harvesting, healthy eating, and how to make healthy meals.

We’re committed to our values of educating many, communicating well, providing opportunities, and having fun along the way. We believe that by living out these values, we can do our best work and help our clients achieve their goals.Thank you for considering Stepping Stones Community Services, LLC and S.E.L.F., Inc. We’re excited to take this journey with you and help you take the necessary steps to achieve your dreams.
