The Friends First House offers a place of community, stability, safety, and support for homeless men and women. Issues from the past can be thought about and addressed, and realistic and achievable plans for the future can be made with confidence.
I came to the House cold, hungry, depressed, and with broken bones. It was very helpful to have someone who I could trust and talk to, and who could help me. You feel that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Now my life is transformed! …I have a job, a place to live, and hope. Friends First has been fantastic to me; words cannot describe how thankful I am. House resident
The House is not a short-stay hostel and does not accept emergency referrals. It is a stepping stone for homeless men and women who have expressed a desire to live independently, but who need a period of stability and support beforehand in order to achieve this.
The Friends First House is home to 12 people; both men and women at any one time.
