A NEW DAY AT FIRST STOP

Has there ever been a more exciting time to be a part of the Huntsville community? Consistently named one of the best places to live and work in the country, we are continually surrounded by new economic, entertainment and recreational opportunities. Unfortunately, Huntsville’s growth also means a growth in the homeless community, as well as the challenges that group faces and presents.

A New Day at First Stop is about supporting Huntsville’s development with expanded facilities, resources and programs to assist our growing number of homeless clients secure independent, sustainable housing.

A New Day at First Stop will raise money to build an expanded area for Case Management, providing ample room for offices and meeting space. The existing Case Management area will be repurposed to support the new Enrichment Program. 

Homelessness is about more than just housing

Our homeless clients face numerous problems and challenges. Lasting success requires education, training and preparation. First Stop’s new Enrichment program will provide important resources and guidance to clients as they progress down the path to independent living. Through a combination of partnerships with other community organizations and programs developed and executed by First Stop staff and volunteers, clients will receive help in important areas like:
Job Readiness & Workforce Training
Financial Counseling & Empowerment
Educational Advancement
Computer Skills & Training
Health & Hygiene Education
Addiction Recovery

Ready to Move Initiative 

This “final” piece of the Enrichment Program walks with the client as they move into their new home, providing “in-home” assistance for running and managing a household, staying connected to supportive resources, and learning how to be a good tenant and roommate. A successful 2021 launch of the Enrichment Program will require additional curriculum, equipment and staffing
