Amplify Austin is our city’s annual community-wide day of online giving. This year our community raised $9.8 million for hundreds of nonprofits.  This 24 hour period of online giving provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping nonprofits.

Even though Amplify Austin giving day is over for 2017, you can donate year-round to help families move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.

We Shelter

Your donation will helps 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.

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.
