Be A Turning Point in Someone's life

Caritas of Austin relies on the community's support and involvement to serve thousands of our neighbors who do not have a stable place to call home. Your generosity enables us to support people on their journey out of crisis toward self-sufficiency through housing, food, education, and employment services. Ninety cents of every dollar goes directly to support an individual or family in their time of greatest need. We are grateful for your support. Together, we can help ensure that everyone in our community has the opportunity to be self-reliant.
