EMPOWERING our clients to achieve stability.
We work with community partners to provide enrichment, education, mentoring, support, and housing assistance. Our goal? To position clients in healthy, financially stable, living situations and create permanent changes in the lives of homeless individuals in the Huntsville community. We define and measure this goal as being housed for 2 consecutive years with First Stop follow-up assistance.
Through observations, assessments, and interviews, First Stop has discovered that many lack the tools, skills, education, resources and support needed to sustain independent living. Our Enrichment program is necessary to educate, train, and prepare clients for independent living through self-sufficiency.
Our 5 Initiatives are designed with the client in mind to set them up for successful, sustainable living outside of the homeless camps:
As a final way to EMPOWER our clients, and ensure that they successfully maintain independent living, First Stop Case Managers provide two years of supportive services for housed clients. This stage of our Case Management program includes follow-up calls and in-home visits.
