Religious Coalition to Assist the Homeless

Take Action

If your congregation owns its property and that property is located in the city of Austin, you only need to contact us to join. Joining the Coalition is simple.  Each congregation is required to fill out a City of Austin affidavit/application and a Texas Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certificate and submit it to the Coalition’s fund administrator.
