Organizational Overview
Footsteps is the go-to address for any individual who has left — or is contemplating leaving — an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. We provide crucial peer and professional resources and support as people embrace the challenge to redefine their identities, build new communities and establish self-determined lives. Footsteps nurtures a network of individuals so that they not only survive in their new world, but thrive. Since Footsteps’ founding in 2003, the organization has served over 1,000 individuals. As the organization has grown to meet increasing demand for services, the staff has expanded from four to eight employees in the past two years, and for the first time, the organization’s budget is over $1 million in 2015.
