Featured Item: Rocking Chairs for Trauma-Informed Care

As part of trauma informed care at Stepping Stones of Rockford, we provide rocking chairs at our locations. The rocking chairs cost $200 each and we honestly cannot have too many. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all our clients had access to a rocking chair? Yes, it would be wonderful... appreciated and therapeutic!

We have chosen a specific rocking chair, as we needed something sturdy, inviting and consistent acorss the agency. That's why we ask for monetary donation. Once your donation is received, we purchase the agency-specified rocking chair. 

To donate a rocking chair, please contact Randy Roberson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (815-963-0683).

Want to personalize your rocking chair donation? We include an engraved tag on each chair. Rocking chairs may be donated in your name, someone else’s name, on behalf of another person or in memory of a lost loved one. When you contact Randy in regards to the donation, he will need to know the name (s) as you would like them to read on the engraved tag.

Want your chair to go somewhere specific? You may have have options! Please let Randy know where you'd like the chair to be placed. He will work with you to identify where your chair will "go." Choices include community areas in supervised and supported sites; agency-owned apartments; River North apartments; and/or agency offices (accessible to clients).
