ECHO and the Austin/Travis County community will not be conducting an in-person unsheltered Point in Time (PIT) Count in 2021 due to the pandemic. Instead, we are asking community members to volunteer your time and energy in a safe way that works for you. It’s simple: Pick an option below, spend the first few weeks of January preparing your donation or other engagement, then deliver them to the organization you’re supporting on Jan. 28. Be sure to take photos and videos to share with your networks to get others involved!
The link below offers some options from the Continuum of Care partners--including Front Steps! (Note: list will be updated throughout January)
Front Steps staff are part of every Cold Weather Shelter night running smoothly. And we take BLANKETS. No way to fully thank everyone who sent blankets already, these are going out steadily to unsheltered individuals in our community.Cold weather shelters have been activated tonight 1/11. Single adults in need of shelter should report to the Central Library (710 W Cesar Chavez) 6-8PM. Families in need of shelter should report to the Downtown Salvation Army Shelter (501 E. 8th Street ) by 6PM.
A health screening for COVID-19 will be done during registration and temperatures will be checked.
