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's strength-based approach is used with our children too! In StarKids!, children discussed how families come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the strengths they saw in their own families: Communication -- talking to each other in the car and turning technology off during dinner; Health -- planning healthy meals together and going to doctors appointments; Support -- listening and understanding each other, helping with chores, and smiling a lot. Doesn't focusing on the strengths of others make you smile a lot too? If you are interested in helping with our StarKids! program on Thursday evenings this fall, email us at volunteer@saintlouisehouse.org. ... See MoreSee Less
