Did you know that, on any given night, there are only beds for 1 out of 3 homeless people in Austin? As one of the least-funded and highest-occupancy cities in Texas, thousands of homeless folks find themselves without help and without a community of support, especially in South Austin. We don't have the all the answers, but we are committed to doing what we can to love our neighbors - those who have homes and those who do not. Not only are we the only Austin church in the ECHO Continuum of Care, which unites homeless ministries across the city towards permanent housing solutions, we're also recognized throughout the county as one of the most innovative solutions to our city's growing homeless issues.
Against all odds, Sunrise has been leading the charge to transform the way Austin deals with homelessness, bringing humanitarian aid, connection to housing resources and many other forms of support to people experiencing homelessness in Austin.
