First Step House's mission is to help people and families build lives of meaning, purpose, and recovery. Founded in 1958, FSH has evolved into a dual-diagnosis behavioral health treatment and housing provider for no and low-income individuals and families. We have been a consistent leader in the Salt Lake area delivering evidence-based interventions and positive outcomes for Veterans and civilians who experience behavioral health conditions, homelessness, mental illness, criminal justice involvement, and primary health concerns. We operate 2 residential treatment, 2 outpatient, and 6 transitional housing facilities in Salt Lake City, Utah and are currently in the process of building a 75-unit Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH). The scope of services we offer include substance use disorder and mental health assessment, residential and outpatient treatment, housing, case management, employment support, primary health care and dental services, peer support services, and long-term recovery management. Through our programs, we serve over 730 individuals per year – many of who arrive at our doorstep with very little resources and lack of family support.
