First Stop, Inc.
We seek out the homeless in our community both where they are (homeless camps) and in the First Stop facility delivering aid and serving basic needs.
Outreach is an important part of the work we accomplish at First Stop, Inc. First Stop sponsors three - four Encounter Teams that visit homeless camps in Huntsville each week bringing critical aid, building relationships, and promoting the resources offered at our Stokes St. facility. We distribute personal items and coordinate with local service providers to deliver needed care. This opens the door to greater interaction and a more customized care and is the first step on the path we offer.
Organizations can support this mission by collecting items for distribution by our Encounter Groups. A list of necessary items may be found here. Kits of personal items for our clients are needed. Dental care, personal care along with sunblock, bug repellant and feminine products are a few of the items needed.
Paving a continuous path from homelessness to independent, sustainable living
