Welcome to Changing Footprints
Changing Footprints realizes the great need for shoes around the world as protection from diseases and a gateway to education. Because of that need we collect new and gently used shoes for distribution to homeless, disaster-stricken, or underprivileged people locally, nationally, and internationally regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnicity. As a nonprofit, registered 501(c)3 organization founded in 2005, we operate out of 5 warehouses located in Rushville, North and South Indianapolis, Hancock County, and New Haven, Indiana. As our reputation has grown, we have had the pleasure of working with many social service agencies, church missions, medical relief teams, military personnel, and disaster relief teams, requesting shoes for their missions. We never lose sight of our mission since we work personally with teams who actually take the shoes and see that they reach those in need.
"Concord children and adults so appreciate the many pairs of shoes Changing Footprints donated recently. I am pleased to report that the shoes were gone within 2 days and I don’t really know who was happier, the children or the parents. My favorite visual was a darling little girl walking out of the center with her mom wearing purple cowgirl boots! Thank you so much!!"

"We are grateful that Changing Footprints wants to support us in our efforts to "provide resources, empower lives and end homelessness." Horizon House served nearly 4,000 homeless individuals last year. This would not have been possible without the generosity of committed individuals such as you."
