Transitional housing and homeless shelters Austin and Travis County.

Residents of Travis County Texas that are either currently homeless or in the process of being evicted can receive help from a variety of short term housing programs, including homeless shelters, transitional units, or even motel rooms. Non-profits, churches and charities in the Austin area, often working with the state or federal government for funding, can provide qualified individuals with support. This can include a homeless shelter or short term, transitional housing near you, listed below.

The shelter locations can provide people a place to stay for a few nights or longer, with some for veterans, women with children, immigrants and others. The transitional and low income housing units in the Travis County region provide longer term support, including including information on financial help or food. Those using the facilities will often need to attend case management, life skills, or job training programs. They will also receive assistance in finding a more permanent home in the greater Austin region. Read more on financial support.

So regardless of your personnel situation, whether you are homeless or not, individuals have options. Many agencies work to ensure people have safe, affordable housing available to them. While most of the focus is on the homeless, many other low income families can find help as well.
