Through their generous donations, Austin Street Center is able to continue to help homeless men and women in the Dallas area.

Austin Street Center provides safe shelter and meets the basic needs of the most vulnerable homeless.

Founded in 1983, Austin Street Center is an emergency shelter that serves men ages 45 and older and women ages 18 and older. Each person who finds shelter with us is provided a safe place to sleep, showers, clothing, and meals. Once their basic needs are met, they can begin working on other aspects of their lives that will help them transition out of homelessness such as, a work readiness program, substance abuse support and spiritual support.
