“If it wasn’t for working with these guys, I wouldn’t have this full time job. Working those two days a week gave me the motivation to go full time. I wanna go to work and earn a check, I wanna feel good about that money, and feel good when I pay my bills. I’m so glad that I met The Other Ones, If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.”

WHO GIVES?

Austen Bailey has been a supporter of TOOF since our inception. He serves as the Outreach Director for One Chapel and the Talent Buyer for Mohawk, coming face to face with homelessness nearly every day...

“Working on Red River…you develop a heart for people. You see folks disgusted, stepping over our neighbors experiencing homelessness, treating them like they’re anathema or flat out ignoring them. It’s gut wrenching.

I’m a big fan of the ‘teach a man to fish’ philosophy, and The Other Ones Foundation is doing just that…You’re investing in people, restoring their dignity. By providing not only employment opportunities of which they can take pride in, but also the opportunity to connect with their co-workers, you’re creating community. You’re sending the message that not only is your time, and your work valuable, but you are inherently valuable.”
