Austin Winter Response Collaboration

Winter Response Fund to support Austin's unhoused residents with warmth and support

Beginning tonight, February 2, our unhoused neighbors will be exposed to sustained high winds, freezing temperatures and freezing rain starting at about 3 AM. Many may see their tents destroyed by the wind at a time when City of Austin (COA) shelters have closed. Most will have no access to transportation or a way to dry off.

Community Resilience Trust and collaborating organizations are activating to deliver warming supplies to our unhoused neighbors who are choosing to shelter in place, transport those who want to stay at shelters, and are setting up overflow warming centers for those who are not able to make it into COA shelters.
