Our Story

Over 25 years ago, one of our founders was working as the IT Director of a large behavioral health and residential services agency in New York. Sensing a need for a better way to track and report on their services, he developed a case management system for his agency. Over time, two other agencies joined in and helped expand the software so that it could serve the needs of virtually any human services agency in the country.

Today, Foothold’s team and our software support hundreds of agencies across the nation, in Guam, and in Puerto Rico. With our technology expertise and roots in human services, we continue to empower agencies to focus on their missions.
