LINC Austin Outreach provides feet-on-the-ground mobile outreach to individuals experiencing homelessness. Our mobile outreach team provides friendship, hope and mentorship along with much needed basic needs and Case Management.
Our Outreach Team focuses primarily on the Highway 183/Highway 290/Interstate 35 Corridor
Hwy 183: North to Burnet Road and South to Manor Road
I-35: 51st Street north to Travis County/Williamson County line
Compassionate and genuine relationships based on hope and encouragement.
Food/Snacks, clothing, hygiene items, sleeping bags, backpacks, blankets and other items as they are available.
Case Management Services focus on resources to provide:
State IDs, Social Security Cards, Birth Certificates
Programs to resolve obstacles into housing
As relationships are built through outreach, the focus transitions to providing more individualized care. Our hope is that as we learn specific obstacles and barriers, we can provide tangible steps to overcome their current situation and prepare them for a more sustainable path.
Our team believes that this is a crucial piece to begin building a healthier, stronger and more confident life. LINC Austin Outreach walks with each individual through the referral process. We walk hand-in-hand with clients to each appointment to provide support and advocacy.
