Amplify Austin is right around the corner and we invite you to join in our efforts as we raise funds for those in greatest need in our community. Amplify Austin is our city’s annual community-side day of online giving, starting at 6:00 p.m on March 2 and ending 6:00 p.m. on March 3. This 24 hour period of online giving provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping nonprofits.
Schedule your gift today! Schedule any time before March 2, and receive one complementary General Admission to our Rock The Red Kettle ATX Concert in November.
Your donation will help support women and children who are experiencing homelessness in our community. At our two emergency shelters in Austin, we work with clients to link them to long-term housing opportunities. Clients, while they are working on their self-sufficiency goals with their assigned case manager, have the option of staying in residence between thirty to ninety days. We are here to help meet their needs so they can learn to meet their own.
The services we provide are comprehensive. We work with every member of the family. We provide case management for the moms and the single women. We provide individual and family therapy as well as groups. We have outings and activities in the evening, and an onsite licensed teacher for tutoring and enrichment activities.
Looking back on Amplify Austin 2016
Thanks to the donations of more than 209 people, last year The Salvation Army raised $30,329 through Amplify.
As our city grows, so does the number of families in need of urgent care. 73 percent of The Salvation Army’s clients sheltered in Austin last year were women and children. They are the fastest growing segment of Austin’s homeless population. Your support through Amplify Austin this March 2-3, will help serve those in our community with the most need.
We are all one crisis away from needing a helping hand. the people we serve are daughters, sons, mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, neighbors, teachers, business owners and friends that have experienced that crisis, and now they need the HAND UP that we can provide.
