Austin Street Centre (Feed the Homeless)
Austin Street Centre located near downtown Dallas offers a multitude of programs. In particular, they offer an emergency shelter housing 425 men, women and children each night. Over 25% of those utilizing the emergency shelter at night have fulltime employment, but personal catastrophe in their lives has caused them to lose their homes. Austin Street is helping them get back on their feet.
In addition, Austin Street opened a transitional living facility in 2000 housing 40 men and women who are on the step-up work program. This program helps those employed, stay employed and improve their living situation through group therapy and other classes.
Ascension members assist Austin Street Centre’s efforts by preparing lasagnas and taking them to the shelter to serve residents living there overnight. This is one day of the month when the residents receive a hot meal.
- Cook and/or travel down to the Centre with other volunteers to serve lasagnas on the first Saturday of each month. (Except Jan, July and Sept.).
- Purchase other needed food items such as fruit and bread.
- Assist with other activities as needed throughout the year such as clothing and book drives.
No training necessary to get involved. Contact the leaders in charge for more information, or just sign-up online
