First Step Back Home

O'Fallon, MO 63366, United States

Our Purpose

To help the homeless and working poor become self-supporting by providing them temporary shelter, food, clothing, transportation, referrals, and various counseling and support.


First Step Back Home strives as its main objective to help the homeless and working poor work toward full self-supporting status. With that goal, it is unable to provide assistance to those that might have serious physical or mental issues that would prevent them realistically attaining a job and becoming self-supporting. Such individuals will be referred to other agencies.

FSBH will not provide any assistance whatsoever to:

  • Active drug/substance addicts or alcoholics
  • Sex offenders
  • Those with outstanding arrest warrants
  • Con artists
  • Any person that does not want to find and hold a job

For those people meeting First Step Back Home eligibility requirements, the following important types of tangible assistance may be provided. What and how much an individual might receive depends on their specific needs and employment status, and also FSBH’s financial means at that time:

  • Temporary housing in local motels, and shelter referrals; also case-by-case help with new permanent housing, utilities
  • Daily hot meals at local FSBH-partner motel(s), provided by numerous churches and volunteer groups
  • Survival food boxes if food pantries are closed (Click Here)
  • Thrift shop vouchers for clothing
  • Survival backpacks with underwear, toiletries (Men’s | Women’s)
  • Cell phones (one month term) to help in job search
  • Medications
  • Gas, car payment help, and other car expense items
  • Help with utility bills
  • Bus fare
  • Bicycles, when available
  • Rides, as available from volunteers
