Since opening our doors in 1986, our organization has helped more than 3,500 individuals and families in Cuyahoga County.

While most alumni have gained the skills necessary to regain their independence, they remain connected to the Front Steps family. All are welcome to participate in select programs and events, and some have even formed an alumni group.

The Front Steps Housing and Services Alumni Group meets to discuss the progress in their lives, give each other support and brainstorm ways to give back to Front Steps. Many alumni return to teach programs on-site, talk to residents or even organize fundraisers that benefit Front Steps.

If you were a Front Steps (previously Transitional Housing Inc.) resident and would like to get reconnected with the alumni group, please contact Schanavian Adams at
