Get Involved

Our community is stronger when we work together

Investors, philanthropists, property owners, service providers, data scientists, community advocates – there’s a need for all of us to work alongside our unhoused neighbors to ensure homelessness is rare, brief, and one-time.

If you or your organization is interested in joining the Austin/Travis County Homelessness Response System, please complete the short questionnaire below. An appropriate ECHO staff member will contact you to discuss next steps for your individual situation.


Ways to Get Involved

  • Are you a developer/property owner and interested in contributing housing units to help people exit homelessness?

    Blurb about current vacancies we have and unit needs/some data points about unit contribution

  • Are you already serving people experiencing homelessness or are you interested in becoming a service provider?

    Blurb about current system services/providers and continued need for community assessors, rrh providers, psh providers, navigation and outreach programs

  • Are you a philanthropist/investor and want to contribute to our CoC programs and resources?

    Blurb about current funds flowing into CoC and gaps in funding/increased need and potential benefit

  • Are you a community advocate interested in ways to get involved personally?

    Maybe just links to Advocacy Committee stuff/GivePulse?

  • Are you a data scientist and want to use your skillset to help end homelessness?

    Blurb from Akram/Claire/Chris M. about how people can plug into the data side? If that’s a thing? Or maybe some suggestions for external research projects that would help with the intersectionality of homelessness and other systems? And link to the data request form?

Don’t see your situation listed here but still want to get involved? No problem! Fill out the form with as much information as you can and we’ll be in touch.

The Coordinated Entry System is an approach of coordination and management of a crisis response system’s resources that allows users to make consistent decisions from available information to efficiently and effectively connect people to housing and service interventions that will rapidly end their homelessness. Through coordinated entry, a CoC ensures that the highest need, most vulnerable households in the community are prioritized for housing and services first.
