day center

Welcome to the First Stop Day Center!

First Stop’s Day Center connects homeless individuals to several important services and resources. Our facility is open to the homeless community during the day when most other shelters in the area are closed. This provides an important positive and productive environment and atmosphere, while helping to connect homeless individuals to helpful services and people.

What better way to build relationships than to share a meal?

Thanks to our dedicated groups of volunteers and donors, First Stop is able to serve hot and delicious breakfasts and lunches to our homeless community every weekday. These are important times for building relationships, explaining services available at First Stop and other Huntsville agencies, and encouraging our homeless friends to make decisions to improve their health and future.

The First Stop Day Center serves meals and provides support and services to almost 100 homeless individuals daily. It’s amazing to witness, and that work would not be possible without the help of countless volunteers.

Additional Day Center Services

Day Center visitors check-in upon arrival and have access to showers, laundry services, and two daily meals. Partner organizations, volunteers, and staff collaborate to provide a wide range of services to the homeless community. This includes faith organizations and pastoral care, veteran services, medical and mental health organizations, and First Stop case managers. Individuals can set Case Management appointments to empower them on their journey to independent sustainable living.
