Help us support our staff on the front lines in Travis and Williamson counties serving our neighbors in need.

Each day, more than 90 Salvation Army Austin staff members are working on the frontlines to help those most in need. Support them today by creating a fundraising page or donating. Thanks to our Foundation partners, the first $50,000 raised will be matched.

Staff Story image

“I work for The Salvation Army because I enjoy helping others reach their potential while they are facing barriers or in crisis. I want to remind people that they matter, and not to give up on themselves.”

Janee has an educational background in Community Health and is a Family Case Manager at The Rathgeber Center for Families in Austin. Since February, she has been impacting our most vulnerable neighbors in our community. Janee meets with residents on a weekly basis to ensure they are working towards their personal goals for self-sufficiency. Janee also collaborates with other providers in the community to coordinate services for residents.

The Salvation Army is the leader of shelter services in Austin. In 2019, The Salvation Army Austin provided shelter and wrap-around services to 2,104 men, women and children. The overall need has increased with the opening of the new family shelter in Austin.
