Agency Spotlight: Saint Louise House

Austin Diaper Bank is pleased to be able to provide diapers to Saint Louise House, whose mission is to empower women with children to overcome homelessness in Central Texas.
Saint Louise House was founded in 2000 to address the drastic shortage of safe housing and supportive services for homeless women and children. They provide deeply affordable and supportive housing for low income homeless women and their children with the goal of helping families develop long-term stability. Saint Louise House has grown from five apartments in 2001 to two 24-unit apartment complexes and the capacity to serve 46 families. In an apartment-style housing environment, families are encouraged to be a part of our supportive community as they work or attend school.  To achieve their mission, they provide a housing and a program that includes case management, counseling, life skills training and employment services.   Saint Louise House collaborates with their families, their partner organizations, and volunteers to serve the most vulnerable of our community in their hour of need—and in the months and years that follow.
