Saint Louise House is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the success of women and their children moving from homelessness to healthy independent lives. We strive to empower women and their children to overcome homelessness for generations to come. Our proven program provides stable housing and wraparound services with highly-individualized support that fosters education, financial literacy, strong family relationships and healthy living, leading to a lifetime of self-sufficiency.
Who We Serve: Austin’s Hidden Homeless
Women and children are Austin’s true hidden homeless. In an effort to keep children off the streets and out of sight, women-led families — often fleeing domestic abuse, find themselves bouncing from temporary shelter to shelter, sofa-surfing, and sleeping in cars or hotels. Without safe and stable housing, mothers cannot focus on the steps necessary to pull themselves and their children out of crisis and overcome economic insecurity.
Families Transformed & Now Thriving Independently
While Saint Louise House provides a pathway to stability for families experiencing homelessness, it is the strength and resilience of the mothers and children which makes the impossible possible.
