I got a call from Patricia Flood today, program manager at Stepping Stones Recovery Center in Covina.
Apparently, people are getting a little confused with Stepping Stones Recovery Center and Stepping Stones for Women, which is also in Covina.
Why does this matter? Well Virgil Cleon Harper, who is facing child molestation charges amid allegations he inappropriately touched nine students at Azusa’s Powell Elementary School, is on the board of Stepping Stones for Women.
The two organizations may share like names and may be located in the same city, but they are defintely not the same. Harper’s group is on Arrow Highway, while Flood’s center is on Cypress Street.
So if you are somehow affiliated with the recovery center, no need to worry, we’re talking about that other Stepping Stones place.
