The Firehouse Shelter

Firehouse Ministries serves more chronically homeless men than any agency in the state of Alabama. Founded in 1983, we operate the broadest, most comprehensive continuum of services for not only Birmingham’s homeless but, for those experiencing homelessness in surrounding areas, as well. We offer meals, street outreach, employment readiness workshops, literacy skills, life training skills and a clothing closet to approximately 5,000 of our city’s most desperate citizens yearly. Firehouse Ministries provides housing for homeless men with 215 beds at 11 sites throughout the city of Birmingham. Additionally, we offer a day program wherein any person- man or woman- can come to the shelter for a meal, a shower and clean clothing as well as permanent supportive housing to 24 men with documented serious mental illness.
