Your donations of money, items, time, and skills can change a life today. Join TOOF in offering shelter, opportunity, and support to our unhoused neighbors in Austin! Check out the following ways to support TOOF's mission:

While we are based in Austin, we ask that checks (and only checks) be sent directly to our Secure Bank Lockbox Mailing Address:

The Other Ones Foundation Inc
P O Box 736039
Dallas, Tx 75373-6039

Contact with any questions about mailing checks.


We are always in need of supplies out at the Esperanza Community. Drop offs for in-kind donations will be accepted Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM. To schedule your drop off on those days, please email Katherine Santulli at Please note, we do not accept ANY clothing other than BRAND NEW socks/underwear.


If you, or people in your community, are interested in volunteering off-site, one great way to do that is to collect hot weather items for our neighbors! As the weather heats up in Austin, TX there are much needed supplies that can keep everyone, and their pets, safe and cool. Items can be purchased on our Amazon Wish List or the list below: 

  • Cooling Bandanas for People and Pets 
  • Handheld, Electric Fans
  • Insulated Cooler Bag
  • Reusable Water Bottles
  • Baseball Caps 
  • Hats with Neck Protection
  • Sunscreen 
  • Bugspray 

All donated items must be new and unused.


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.”
