Religious Coalition to Assist the Homeless

Devoted to Ending Homelessness in Austin.

We’re part and parcel in a network of organizations united by a commitment to feed, clothe, and house those among us in need.


For 2017, the Religious Coalition to Assist the Homeless is awarding 19 Austin-based agencies $800,000 for emergency shelter, transitional housing, permanent housing, case management and hospice care.  These agencies provide much needed services to single adult homeless men and women, unaccompanied youth, veterans, single mothers, families, low-income and homeless neighbors, immigrants, ex-offenders and medically fragile people found living on Austin streets.  READ MORE


Serving our community for more than 160 years, faith-based organizations continue to offer the spiritual manna to our congregants and the hope and care for our indigent neighbors. Joining with social service agencies, the RCAH endeavors to speak with one voice as one advocate for the congregations and the people we serve as we coordinate and advocate for crucial social services.  READ MORE


RCAH and the agencies and congregations with whom we collaborate are seeking help from citizens who are willing and able to lend a hand. Together, we can significantly impact the number of people living on the streets of Austin. Learn more about the groups in our network and the volunteer activities they call for.
