The Impact of Your DonationThe Stewart Community Home began as a vision Sarah Stewart had in an effort to help those less fortunate individuals who had no place to live, no medical services and were deviliated by a variety of disabilities. Now, nearly 40 years later, The Stewart Community Home relies on the kindness and generosity of hundreds of supporters to make its mission and services successful.
