WELCOME TO SAINT LOUISE HOUSE


…empowering women with children to overcome homelessness

We believe every mother deserves the chance to provide a safe and loving home for her children.
 
Saint Louise House provides housing and essential services in Austin to women with children who are experiencing homelessness.  Our goal is for families to stay together and develop long-term stability and self-sufficiency. 
 
While living at Saint Louise House, women connect with on-site support and participate in case management with our licensed social workers to advance employability skills, financial competencies, health and education.    As the experts in their own lives, our Saint Louise House families are treated with dignity, respect and trust while being supported on their journey toward change.  With these supportive services in place, families have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential and transform their lives, breaking the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
 
We believe that providing affordable housing alone is not enough.  We believe in providing a pathway to a better life.

Saint Louise House serves the “invisible homeless” – women and children. In an effort to keep children off the streets, mothers tend to move from one unstable living situation to another, doubled-up or couch-surfing with family or friends when there is no room for them in shelters. Over 2,300 students in the Austin Independent School District were identified as homeless last year, and over 80 percent of homeless families are led by women.
