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 those experiencing homelessness in Birmingham and surrounding areas. We offer four daily meals, street outreach, employment readiness workshops, literacy skills, life training skills, and a clothing closet to approximately 5,000 of our city’s chronically homeless individuals annually. Firehouse Ministries provides housing for homeless men throughout the city of Birmingham, including permanent supportive housing to men with serious mental illness. Additionally, we offer a day program wherein any person can come to the shelter for a meal, a shower, and clean clothing. Firehouse is the only shelter in Alabama and one of only eight in the country funded by the CDC to offer a medical respite program for homeless men who aren’t sick enough to be hospitalized but too sick to live on the street.
