Welcome to First Light

First Light is A Center for Homeless Women and Children located in the heart of downtown Birmingham. It offers the only emergency shelter accepting homeless women and homeless women with children 24 hours a day in the area. In addition to meeting the basic needs of our guests, we offer:
  • Individualized case management
  • A variety of activities, both fun and informational
  • Four permanent + one transitional housing programs
  • Most of all, a place of acceptance where guests can begin to regain dignity, hope and independence
We hope that you are uplifted and inspired as you read about how First Light was founded, how it is supported by this community, and how you can help. Welcome to First Light.
