You are the reason hope is here at Esperanza. Everyday, more and more shelters arrive at our community as we prepare to welcome our friends into safe & secure shelter. With your generous support The Other Ones Foundation is building a solid pathway for people to make the journey from homelessness to home.

Now, more than ever, Austin needs a better way to address the crisis of homelessness in our city. We’re asking you to make your voice heard and offer your support as we build a future where all people experience shelter, opportunity, and support.

With your continued contributions, The Esperanza Community is transforming into a shelter complex where people are finding the traction they need get to a more fulfilling chapter of their lives.
