Our first step in helping the unhoused community in Austin is establishing a safe place for women.

This involves two things:


Helping Women First

Emergency Women’s Shelter provides emergency shelter, counseling, and case management at a confidential, secure location for homeless women and children.


A Women’s Home provides an intimate, safe community as a next step for six or seven women. This discipling home will be close to a bus line, within walking distance to shopping, groceries, and job opportunities as women heal and grow together in a healthy community.

To help us bring this vision to fruition, contact HOPE ON THE WAY or donate here:

Immediate access to a safe environment where anyone can show up as they are and receive help and love. 


As a person transitions from the street, they have the opportunity to move from a tent to a dormitory to individual housing.


Provide a modicum of safety and security missing in life on the street, which builds a foundation for healthy relationships.


Deal with childhood trauma and establish a foundation on the word of God that restores freedom through the Father's love.


On-site community services to grow people in spiritual and emotional maturity as they step into their God-given identity.


Restore peace and joy by creating opportunities to seed back into the community through cheerful giving of Godly talents.


Teach financial accountability and communication skills through programs/mentors that optimize physical and mental healing.
