Front Steps - Keep Austin Housed
500 E. 7th St.
The design of the Keep Austin Housed AmeriCorps project is to partner with social service agencies that serve the homeless population in Austin and to augment their case management programs by providing these agencies with AmeriCorps members to enhance their level of service delivery. AmeriCorps members assess for client needs, develop action plans to meet goals, and provide support to work with clients toward achieving their goals. Our project's AmeriCorps members engage clients in a process that empowers them to obtain and/or maintain permanent affordable housing and improve personal stability through the development of effective life skills. In addition, members educate the community-at-large on issues related to homelessness and access the support of community volunteers and in-kind donations, and financial contributions.
