THE ROLE OF FRONT STEPS
Front Steps serves individual clients and advocates for a greater understanding of the issue and growing engagement in solutions. Ending homelessness in Austin will require public and private support and Front Steps works with corporate, philanthropic, and city, county, state, and federal agency partners to secure resources to make experiences of homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring.
WHAT INDIVIDUALS CAN DO
The first step in advocating for the homeless is to learn about homelessness, a complicated and often contentious social issue. Donating and volunteering with nonprofits working to end homelessness is appreciated, but there are other opportunities to make a difference. Speaking up on social media and at public forums on this issue has tremendous impact. Bringing the facts to conversations makes a difference.
