Front Steps Housing and Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of homelessness for individuals and families in Cuyahoga County.

Our ability to maintain a safe and stable environment for residents, as well as ongoing supportive services, is dependent on a combination of donations and grants. All donations, no matter the size, are greatly appreciated and make a true difference in the lives of those we serve. You can also schedule payments to be made monthly, quarterly or annually!

Your donation will:

  • Reduce homelessness
  • Reduce recidivism rate in the legal system
  • Reduce emergency room visits and hospitalizations 
  • Increase self-sufficiency and independence of those served
  • Provide affordable housing to those in most need

Please note: Your information will not be shared or sold to any person or organization.
