We are a community of people who have a heart to reach out to those who are hurting and need a helping hand. We provide a hot meal, a warm bed, and most importantly a non-judgmental atmosphere for our guests in some of our local churches.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? We are looking for people with the same heart to serve our community and love people. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
In years past we operated as the "Fall River Overflow Shelter" directed by Solomons Porch.
The city of Fall River has 1 shelter for the homeless community. First Step Inn houses 20 full time beds throughout the year to offer a place to connect and help those who desperately need a helping hand. In the colder months this shelter adds an "Overflow" area that houses another 30 beds. Thats a total of 50 beds!
Sadly in 2018, the homeless population climbed even higher than what the First Step Inn could handle. Until there is a more permanent solution to this increasing problem we will open an "Emergency Shelter" for 10 weeks based in some of our local churches to provide assistance to the First Step Inn with their goal to help people get off the streets.
Our program will have a "Zero Tolerance" policy for drugs and alcohol and will run January 2, 2019 through March 12, 2019. We are currently seeking volunteers to join with us to serve in this amazing mission of loving "Extraordinary people in transition".
