ACHA 2017
Community Service Project

Please bring your donations to the meeting and drop them off at the Students/Community Service Table in the ACHA registration area by noon on Friday, June 2.

The Salvation Army Austin Area Command
has been serving Travis and Williamson Counties since 1889. Our services include emergency shelter for men, women and families with children, case management services and wrap around services.

Our downtown shelter is a 242 bed facility. The Austin Shelter for Women and Children is a 60 bed facility. All residents of both shelters are provided with a case manager to help them move to stability.

Our goal is to help our clients find jobs, learn to manage a budget, and eventually live on their own. Through the support of the community we are able to help those experiencing homelessness in the Central Texas area. We also work with other agencies to raise awareness of the rise in those experiencing homelessness and work toward a solution.

Your generous donations will be split between our downtown shelter and our Shelter for Women and Children.

Thank you!
