Serving the needs of the homeless in Huntsville, AL

First Stop is an independent local donation and grant-based not-for-profit corporation whose primary objective is to reduce the number of street homeless persons.  First Stop provides outreach to the homeless in the camps, individualized case management support, and placement into permanent housing.


First Stop operates in complete partnership with many homeless support agencies including: the Community Free Clinic, Huntsville Hospital,  Crestwood Medical Center, the Huntsville Housing Authority, the Huntsville Police Department, and the  Community Development Office.


By placing eligible homeless persons into permanent housing, and caring for those still living in the “camps” First Stop provides a valuable service to all citizens of Huntsville and Madison County.


We could not do what we do without the generous support of our donors and volunteers.  Visitors are welcomed to tour the facility at First Stop during the hours we are open.
