Spring 2015


Dear Friend, 


Happy Spring! I'm not sure about you, but our staff and residents are very excited to enjoy some warmer weather! We have been busy this winter creating several new programs, including a fitness class and art therapy class. In addition, our staff has continued to plan social activities such as St. Patrick's Day and Mardi Gras. 

We've also kept busy with planning our 6th Annual Run/Walk for Home 5K. We have such a great time every year and are looking forward to sharing this day with you again. Check out this e-newsletter for more information.


As always, we could not provide a safe and secure environment along with vital programs and services to our residents and the community without our supporters. Thank you for taking the time to learn about Front Steps and as always, please reach out if you would like to learn more.

:: the POWER of Front Steps ::


At Front Steps we are continuously evaluating and updating the programs we bring to our residents based on client needs and feedback. We incorporated a Fitness Class three days a week and the participants have even given themselves a nickname - The Front Steppers! We also started an Art Therapy program, where participants express their emotions through art projects. And, as always, we continue to have fun socials, recently celebrating St. Patrick's Day and Mardi Gras.

Associates Board 
Cook for a Cause
The Associates Board hosted a very unique fundraiser on Sunday, March 22 at Osteria di Valerio & Al. Forty diners came together to learn how to prepare a five course meal, serve the meal and enjoy the meal themselves. All had a wonderful time while raising funds for Front Steps. 

If you are interested in joining the Associates Board, please contact Maggie Byrne at 216.781.2250 or Remember, there is an Associates Board Happy Hour this Thursday, April 9 at 6:00pm at Nano Brew. Stop by to learn more!
