As one of the largest, low barrier homeless shelters in Dallas, Austin Street Center has focused on addressing the issues of homelessness since 1983. Austin Street serves highly vulnerable populations – men age 45 and older, women age 18 and older, many of whom suffer from addiction, victimization or the unexpected loss of resources, with nowhere to turn for help. Austin Street provides the basic needs of a safe place to sleep and shower, along with meals and clothing for 400 clients nightly. In addition to meeting these fundamental needs, life rebuilding skills are also provided through whole-person therapeutic programs, which are designed to help clients transition successfully out of homelessness.
All services at Austin Street Center are confidential and are provided at no charge.
