Applications are reviewed as received. Please understand that our program is not an emergency shelter. Applicants are given priority based upon several factors. Those applicants with close ties to the surrounding neighborhoods are given higher priority than those not from East Austin. However, all income-eligible families are given consideration. Those families that meet the applicant criteria may be invited for an Applicant Interview.
After completion of the interview, candidates may be invited to participate in the pre-admissions process including a 12-week empowerment training course, pre-admissions coaching and documentation collection. Pre-admission participation is a requirement for acceptance into the program. Upon successful participation in the pre-admissions process, an applicant will be invited to a final interview and a decision on acceptance to the program will be made. The admissions decision is final.
