About Stability First

Stability First is a faith-based ministry with the mission to address multiple issues associated with the alleviation of poverty. This includes transitional housing as well as a circle of services geared toward assisting low-income individuals and families in increasing their financial stability and self-sufficiency. Stability First was founded in 2015 to elevate Morgan County residents out of poverty and addiction. Since 2016, we have served women out of our Magdalene house. In 2024, we will be doubling our ministry’s impact by constructing a men’s facility: Foundations House. More information can be found at our website: stabilityfirst.org
