The Other Ones Foundation transitions Austin’s homeless neighbors into an engaged community through shelter, opportunity, and support. TOOF programming is designed to meet this mission by offering extremely low-barrier work opportunities, case management, and humanitarian relief.

What our friends are saying about our programs:
“What working for The Other Ones Foundation did for me, it instilled work values back in me that I had lost over the years of being homeless and living on the streets. And I found values that made me realize I didn’t want to be flying a sign ever again.”
“We were out in a park and they came walking up to us and said, ‘You wanna work?’ We said, ‘Heck yeah!’ It’s just been a blessing. I love the job: you get lunch, you get to work outdoors….Some days you just get lucky.”
“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.”
