No matter what the time of year, hundreds of homeless people are in need across Birmingham. As Christmas draws near, let us not forget these people. There are many ways for you to get involved and serve the homeless. Rather than you going and handing out food or personal hygiene items to them, we recommend you connect with a nonprofit ministry already serving the homeless. Here are 5 of the most well-known organizations that homeless individuals go to when they are in need.
First Light (for women)
Firehouse Shelter (for men)
