Austin's Place: An Emergency Shelter for Homeless Women
Austin's Place is the only emergency shelter for single women in Champaign County. Austin’s Place operates solely on volunteer effort - from volunteers who stay overnight, transport guests, do laundry, make phone calls, advertise, collect donations, etc. Dedicated service meets significant needs and provides valuable support to all the guests that come through our doors. We are thankful for all the faithful volunteers who so generously give their time, energy, prayers, and financial support! Austin's Place happens because of our volunteers!
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” - African Proverb
Besides providing beds of shelter, Austin's Place has been active in our community, advocating for those who may not have an address. Read more about it here!
Thank you to Panera at Old Farm Shops for partnering with us and to all of our supporters, who helped raise $94.93 for Austin's Place! Funds go towards operational costs so that we can open our doors each season. THANK YOU!
