About Us

Stability First is a non-profit organization established to address multiple issues associated with the alleviation of poverty. It deals with transitional housing as well as a circle of services geared toward assisting low income families in increasing their financial stability and self sufficiency.

At present there are three aspects to our work:

  • Foundations is an outreach program for men of all ages who are homeless or living in unstable circumstances.  Volunteers provide spiritual mentoring, goal setting and accountability tools, assistance with stability planning and life coaching. We will soon be developing supportive housing that will reinforce these goals and work to establish men as stable leaders in their homes and communities.

  • The Lynay Community Resource Center is a multi-purpose facility housing a variety of services to bring stability into the lives of the under resourced. Current programming includes: bi-weekly high school equivalency exam prep classes offered by Central Nine, men’s outreach coaching sessions, substance abuse recovery group meetings, and job & career exploration opportunities. Production facilities for the Maggie Bag project are also located here.

  • The Magdalene House is a shelter for single women, providing housing and supportive services for up to 16 women at a time. Our goal is to walk alongside women as they increase in accountability and gain the stability needed to live independently. The program is faith based and provides an individualized, goal oriented approach.

  • The Maggie Bag Project is a sustainability initiative that combines the efforts of Magdalene House residents with those of partners from near and far to produce beautiful handbags.   Learn More
