New Name
As of November 2014, Transitional Housing Inc. is now Front Steps Housing and Services.

We are in the process of creating a new and improved website, but in the meantime please check out our temporary page for additional information here..
Holidays at Front Steps
The holiday season is always a special time at Front Steps. We receive many donations from extremely generous friends and supporters and are able to fill the building with holiday cheer. Enjoy some pictures of both our special donors and residents. 

Fun Fundraisers
We could not be more thankful to our wonderful donors and supporters. We simply would not be here providing the vital services to those in most need if it were not for our supporters. 

To help spark some ideas, we have put together a list of fundraisers. If you are interested in putting something together, please take a look at this list.

Winter 2015


Dear Friend, 


Wow! A lot has happened since our last newsletter. Here are a few of the things we've been up to at Front Steps Housing and Services (formerly known as Transitional Housing Inc.):

  • Completed our strategic plan and shifted from a transitional housing model to a permanent supportive housing model to respond to changes in the needs of the homeless population
  • Executed our First Annual Home for All Ball on Saturday, November 15 at Windows on the River, which raised over $40,000
  • Announced our new organizational name to the community - Front Steps Housing and Services. Check out the press release here.
  • Continued to fulfill our mission of providing individuals and families who are mentally disabled and/or economically disadvantaged in Cuyahoga County with permanent supportive housing and lifelong solutions to increase self-sufficiency and independence
  • Created new collaborations with local non-profits to better serve our community and residents
We have a lot to be grateful for in 2014 including our amazing Board of Directors who executed our transition seamlessly and our many donors, volunteers and supporters. THANK YOU for sticking by our side during this transition. We are excited about what 2015 has to bring for Front Steps Housing and Services.  

 Sherri Brandon, MSSA 
Executive Director
