There are a lot of reasons people need help with housing. Sometimes life doesn’t turn out the way we planned. Other times we experience unexpected circumstances, such as job loss or medical debt. With one in six people living in poverty today, homelessness is not predictable or exclusive to a certain type of person. It could happen to anyone.
When you need a roof over your head for the night, The Salvation Army emergency shelters are here to help. Hundreds of people sleep safely every night in the Austin area because of these programs.
Inspired by our Christian mission, we offer the resources and support to lift up our neighbors in crisis. As the largest provider of emergency shelter in Central Texas, annually we serve more than 10,000 men, women, and children with shelter, addiction rehabilitation, clothing, meals, holiday support, and direct client assistance. We case manage hundreds from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.
