Next Step Foundation, Inc. started this petition to Terre Haute City Council

Terre Haute has a drug problem. Terre Haute needs more residential recovery services. We need your support! Next Step Foundation, Inc. is a residential recovery community organization that has been operating residential recovery services in the historic Farrington's Grove neighborhood for over 10 years. Next Step operates its programs and services from the former Washington Ave. Presbyterian church, built in 1892. In order to expand its services, Next Step would like to build an addition to the church so that they can serve their clients more efficiently and effectively. To do that, they need to rezone their property so that it can continue to be used as a recovery center, with offices, a meeting space, a kitchen. Will you sign our petition in support of Special Ordinance 42 that would allow Next Step to rezone their vacant lot?

According to the United Way of the Wabash Valley, 295 out of 400 children, or nearly 74%, who were removed from their homes in UWWV’s service area in 2020 were removed due to parental drug/alcohol use. Next Step provides the necessary services to address this issue, including peer coaching, mental health services and recovery programs, such as recovery meetings and Recovery Café.

The non-profit organization has invested almost a million dollars and over 5,000 volunteer hours in the Farrington's Grove neighborhood by restoring and renovating the church and many nearby homes that were abandoned or condemned. There have been objections to this expansion plan by some of the neighbors and we need your support. Please sign our petition urging the City Council to vote in favor of this rezoning request.  The vote will take place on Thursday, February 3rd at 6 PM at City Hall.
