Our mission is to build safe environments that ignite positive change through love and outreach.

Since 2001, Footprints has brought help and healing to those in recovery from substance use disorders and shelter and hope for homeless veterans. We provide services to people in recovery including outpatient treatment, transitional housing, support group meetings, life skills, and a drop-in center.

Also, in partnership with the Veterans Administration (VA), we provide housing and case management for homeless veterans. This includes a variety of services from counseling to transportation.
