When you’re the one who needs it, shelter is the most important thing in the world that day.
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.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
