“First Things First” or “FTF” is a fund that financially helps chemically dependent people with sober living costs related to first months rent, move in fees, community outreach and handing out essential items in areas most affected by substance abuse. We are completely funded by donations and fundraising. Throughout the years we have seen a massive movement of people recovering from a hopeless state of mind and body. It is our belief as proven by the many individuals who have recovered, that a simple twelve step approach is all that is needed. With the network of recovery programs we work with we can place an individual in a safe, supportive and structured environment while taking some of the financial burden away.
