First Stop is currently fundraising for a brand new, $3 million Case Management facility at 206 Shorter Street that will feature the following:

  • 9,498 square feet
  • 6 showers
  • 5 washers + 10 dryers
  • On-site medical clinic
  • On-site mental health clinic
  • Classroom space
  • Indoor dining space for 120 people

The organization is fundraising for the facility through its “Largest City, Biggest Heart” campaign and has currently raised $2,153,000 of the $3 million necessary to complete the project.

“First Stop is focused on addressing the many needs of our unsheltered population. They recognize the myriad of challenges these individuals deal with day to day, and they work collaboratively with our Continuum of Care agencies to provide real solutions and support. Having an agency like First Stop on the ground, personally working with those in need is critical in our ongoing efforts to address homelessness.”
