Austin Children’s Shelter

Six children running while holding hands with the text: Your generosity gives our kids the very best possible chance to weather life's storms and grow up healthy and strong. Give today.

Austin Children’s Shelter only exists through the generosity of those who recognize the importance of a safe, nurturing environment for Austin’s youth. As we begin another school year, ACS would like to thank our generous donors.

The beginning of a new school year is no easy time for kids. They see their peers being dropped off for school by their parents. They hear stories about fun family vacations. They watch other kids run to their parents’ cars and get a hug right after school.

For many of the children staying at ACS, those are the very least of the issues they face. The pain, trauma, and loss experienced by these kids is more than most people can imagine.

We give them as much support and guidance as we can, and we can only offer that with generous donations from people like you.

Austin Children’s Shelter provides on-campus services for children, young adults and families affected by abuse, exploitation and neglect. We believe that every child, youth and young adult deserves to feel safe; to receive nurturing care; and the opportunity to grow into happy, responsible and fulfilled adults. Austin Children’s Shelter is a safe space to begin to heal and learn to thrive.

For more than 30 years we have striven to serve the most vulnerable members of our community – which has often meant adapting. As a founding partner of The SAFE Alliance, our continued commitment to meeting our community’s emergency shelter needs will be bolstered. Together, we will achieve our vision of a just and safe community free from violence and abuse.
