The First Step Shelter, a non-profit organization, opened its doors on Dec. 16, 2019. We work with local hospitals, law enforcement, criminal justice, and mental health providers to assist the estimated 900 single homeless men and women in Volusia County. Shelter is the first step, a place to assess and temporarily house people. The difference of the First Step Shelter is we go beyond assessment and temporary shelter by investing in our residents in four vital areas on the path to well-being and housing. Our staff work with each individual to secure Identification, focus on health, gain proof of income and prepare and apply for employment. The First Step Shelter is more than a shelter...we are the path to housing.
