Serving the Greater Area of
Austin, TX


The Austin Resource Center for the Homeless (ARCH) serves as the first point of entry into the homeless service system for many of Austin’s adults experiencing homelessness for the first time, as well as those who have been living on the streets for years. The ARCH is designed to assess client needs, provide information on how and where to access services, and meet the basic emergency needs of homeless adults, as well as provide a place for homeless people to rest and get out of the elements during the day. Nearly 9,000 homeless men and women utilized the ARCH in 2008-09, including an average of approximately 500 individuals each day.

Each year in the winter, Gracy employees participate in "Warm a Heart" by donating blankets and socks to the Resource Center.
