Dallas-based Austin Street Center, with a heart for the people and a home for the homeless, has existed for the past 30 years to provide emergency shelter and related services to the homeless person in a compassionate way. They have developed into a "whole person" therapeutic homeless community, evolving from a basic overnight emergency shelter facility to a full "Care Campus," that today includes a transitional living facilty for those with employment, substance abuse and psychological counseling, a free-standing chapel and an outdoor playground for their shelter kids.
Supported by volunteers from 120 Dallas-area churches and civic organizations, and funded entirely by individuals and foundations. Austin Street Center accepts no government funding from any level, and no United Way funding. Since it's inception in 1983, the Center has provided shelter for an average of 400 men, women and children each night - uniquely, at no cost to the individual!
