Over the past decade plus, First Step House has been in a continuous period of growth. As an organization, we have been committed to identifying gaps within the housing and behavioral health systems and developing high-quality programs, with constant partner collaboration, that can best fill the gaps. This has manifested in the development of two new residential treatment facilities and by establishing two new permanent supportive housing facilities (total of 115 units), taking over operations of a 70-bed Veterans transitional housing facility, and creating and expanding impactful programs (such as supportive employment, case management, peer support, long-term recovery management, and medical services).
For further reference on the significance of our expansion over the past six years, we have more than doubled our staff members (from 70 to 168) and our annual income has more than tripled. With the expansion of our housing, treatment, employment, and medical programs, we are asking YOU to support us in meeting the needs of those we proudly serve. Thank you for your vote of confidence for First Step House and for stepping up as a valuable donor and leader for change in our community.
