First Stop Front of Building Smaller

Welcome to the First Stop Day Center!

This important facility is open to the homeless community during the day when most other shelters in the area are closed. The First Stop Day Center 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

First Stop’s Day Center is also a place for homeless individuals to receive basic supplies like towels, soap and band-aids. Day Center visitors are required to check-in upon arrival, and each visitor receives a Charity Tracker identification card to ensure their basic information and service plan is shared among community agencies to coordinate care. 

In between breakfast and lunch, homeless individuals can make use of First Stop’s shower and laundry facilities. In addition, staff and volunteers are available to assist with basic health care items, mail services, transportation requirements, and accessing necessary prescription medications. 

The First Stop Day Center bustles with activity, but also provides a safe place for homeless individuals to spend time and meet people that can help them build a sustainable plan for an improved life. Many of the individuals coming to the Day Center, enter First Stop’s Case Management program seeking to acquire permanent housing.
