How to Help
Our volunteers and donors are the energy that drives Front Steps. We always need more compassionate and capable volunteers willing to serve in a number of areas. And thoughtful donations of specific items and funds make an enormous difference. We appreciate the support of our community as we strive together to restore hope to the homeless. Join us on our Journey to Hope.

The Know Before You Give public education campaign aims to persuade Austinites to give responsibly, which means donating money to an organization that will use the funds more effectively rather than giving directly to an individual on the street. Panhandling can continue the cycle of dependency, whereas responsible giving empowers both those in need and the Austin community as a whole. Plus our social service network and community are strengthened. Front Steps is one of many partners in the Know Before You Give campaign, including local social service agencies, businesses, residents.
