Join us for a Week of Action to End Homelessness

Thursday, August 27 - Wednesday, September 2, 2020

Even during a pandemic, every person can act in their own way to help end homelessness. Whether you are a long-time activist or just finding your voice, you can be part of the movement to make Austin a safe, caring, and thriving community for all. 


Learn more about participating in the Week of Action through our upcoming Info Session at 2:00pm on Tuesday, August 11, 2020. Register here

What is the Week of Action?

During our first ever Week of Action to End Homelessness, leaders and organizations across the city will call on Austinites to take a specific action each day that will make a difference.

  • Thursday - PREPARE for the week ahead
  • Friday - LEARN about homelessness 
  • Saturday - CREATE something meaningful 
  • Sunday - SHARE what you’ve created
  • Monday - CALL on leaders and community members
  • Tuesday - GIVE what you can to keep momentum going
  • Wednesday - THANK those who make it possible to end homelessness

You can help by not only taking these actions with us, but calling on others to join as well.
