Non-profit Lunch and Learn: First Stop in Helping the Homeless

First Stop is a non-profit agency located in Huntsville whose mission is to provide a basic set of services to homeless people in Huntsville and Madison County. First Stop does not duplicate county services available from other agencies, but works with those agencies to fill gaps that exist in services.
