We believe in…

bringing together persons of all ages and backgrounds to address the issues of homelessness and contribute to a community that is healthy, educated, safe, and self-sustaining.

We believe AmeriCorps Works for Texas!

AmeriCorps is an effective private-public partnership. Grants from The Corporation for National and Community Service, are used by schools, non-profits, faith based groups, and others to strengthen communities across the nation.

In Texas 2,282 AmeriCorps members served over 2.7 million hours in 2014. This group earned up to $8.9 million in Segal Education Awards, used to pay qualified school loans and/or towards further education.  For more information on AmeriCorps in Texas check out our state commission, OneStar.
