Founded in 2001, Footprints, works with the community to recognize, embrace, and assist homeless veterans and people afflicted with substance use disorders. We are trusted servants ushering those who seek a new life onto the road to recovery.
Heroes Home Gate, our short-term residence for homeless veterans, is part of the Homeless Veterans Health Care Initiative of the United States Veterans Administration.
Our recovery community center on Troost Avenue offers fellowship, support groups, counseling and classes to assist those seeking long-term recovery.View our current meeting schedule for recovery groups at the center.
For both of these populations we provide services that assist them to achieve long-term sobriety and permanent housing. This is accomplished through case management, counseling, classes, therapy and support groups, and through assistance with permanent housing placement, providing them with move-in assistance that includes furniture and housewares.
Footprints, Inc. is governed by a board of directors made up volunteers from the local community.
