It is with great regret that we must inform you that Stride has closed its doors. We lost a large federal grant that was so sudden and substantial that we were unable to recover or implement any counter measures to continue Stride’s operations.

Our former staff and board worked diligently with the community and other nonprofits to ensure that the families affected by the funding cuts were re-housed and did not go back into homelessness.

In an effort to maintain Stride we made several attempts to merge with another nonprofit or agency but to no avail. Without the ability to re-fund Stride or merge with another agency, the Board of Directors decided to dissolve the organization.

We are very grateful for the support shown to Stride over the last 25 years without which we would not have been able to help families move out of poverty through giving them hope, and the opportunity for a better future.

It is our hope that we have made an impact on the nearly 2000 families we served and the community at large and that our efforts over the past 25 years have helped in a small way to make the world a bit better for families experiencing poverty.
