Encounter, Connect, Empower

First Stop encounters the homeless where they are, connects them to critical services and support, and empowers them toward independent sustainable living. We exist not only to serve the homeless and make them more comfortable, but also to help them out of homelessness.

Before You Take Items To Camps...

We have a different approach to donations and camp visitation. We work closely with the City of Huntsville and partner organizations to ensure that our work in the camps is helping to empower individuals (not enable). This means we are intentional with what items we bring to the camps, and how visits are coordinated.

We encourage those that want to get engaged with outreach (through meals or items) contact First Stop or another direct service organization directly. This helps to ensure safety of visitors, privacy of camp residents, and reduces duplication of services and waste.
