There’s always something going on with The Firehouse Shelter! Check out our latest news and view photos from our past events. Lives are being transformed on a daily basis and we are grateful for the many volunteers and community supporters who are making a difference!

Homelessness is a complex issue without quick and easy solutions! We invite you to educate yourself about the homeless population here in Birmingham, Jefferson County and the seven county metro area by exploring the featured websites and other literature in our Resource section of the webpage.

Our entire community benefits when the issue of homelessness is dealt with effectively! We are looking for willing partners who are committed to change the world one person at a time, one issue at a time! The knowledge you will gain through these sites will hopefully propel you to act to meet the needs of the chronic homeless men we serve!
