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.
