It will take all of us to end homelessness in Austin

Looking to help end the experience and impact of homelessness in our community? We're here to help you do just that.

Recently the City of Austin and community partners hosted the first ever Week of Action to Support Ending Homelessness, which provides lots of ideas and recommendations for how each of us can make a difference. See more information below. 

You can also visit the How to Help Austin page through GivePulse for opportunities with organizations throughout Central Texas  

Week of Action to Support Ending Homelessness

In 2020 the City of Austin joined partner agencies and community organizations to engage Austinites in taking actions to help make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring. Every specific action looked different, but centered around daily themes learning, creating, sharing, calling, giving and thanking.

You can take meaningful action any day of the year; here are some suggestions:

  • Learn more about homelessness in Austin and what's happening to address it. 
  • Connect with and support one of the many great organizations operating in Austin.
  • Reach out to your elected leaders to make sure they know they support the policies and investments that will end homelessness in our community.
  • Show kindness and compassion to those experiencing homelessness among us; it isn’t always easy, but it does more to make progress than the alternative.

Check back here for more opportunities to get involved with efforts to help people in our city.
