DEAR FRIENDS & COLLEAGUES
First Step Home is responding to the coronavirus emergency almost on a daily basis with directives coming from national, state and local governments.
Our main priority is to care for and serve our clients who are going through substance use disorder and mental health issues safely and well, including minimizing their risk and exposure.
First Step Home is open for business and we continue to accept new referrals. Our leadership and staff will be working diligently throughout these challenging times to address current and future challenges that may arise.
We will continue to focus our activities on the safety and welfare of our clients and their children, as well as staff: assessing critical needs, minimizing face-to-face contact where possible, enacting social distancing standards and working from home where appropriate.
Our programs are continuing to operate – call on us! The main number is 513-961-4663.
Visit our website (www.firststephome.org) for updates and changes in protocol.
We have adopted a no visitor policy for all of our buildings until further notice. We will be working with clients to find alternative methods for those who may be affected by the virus.
I am very encouraged by our staff and clients as we adapt to this international pandemic. We will continue to deliver our mission while under constraints and challenges. Remember, our clients need us more than ever now.

Who is First Step Home?
2019 Rose Award Celebration
Thank you to all who made the evening a great success!
Whether it's a pack of diapers, gently-used clothing,toys or books, pots and pans, bedding, or simply, your time. It will be greatly appreciated. Some of women and children come to us with little more than the clothes on their backs. Your generosity will give them an opportunity at a new life while remaining together as a family.
In order to continue our on-going efforts to help women find sobriety and return to the community as productive mothers and citizens, we need your support. We are always looking for businesses and individuals like you to help make this possible. Partnerships can look different for everyone.
