Needs Statement

We are working to raise $40,000 to provide food, shelter and wraparound services to women and children living in our emergency shelters every day. Our wraparound services include childcare, life skills training, individualized therapy, case management, tutoring, personal budgeting and employment services. Your gift will help women and children facing homelessness move from crisis to stability.

"When you are the one who needs it, shelter is the most important thing in the world that day." - Kathy Ridings, Social Services Director

"Moving my family to a shelter was unimaginable. But The Salvation Army was more than just a shelter. They helped us develop a plan, and gave us opportunities to execute it. We gradually saved money for our own home. We're forever grateful for the compassionate, caring support we received." -Paula.

Your contribution really does make a difference for women and children in greatest need in Travis and Williamson counties. Thank you.
