Housing Opportunities

We can end homelessness with access to housing!

Thank you for your interest in learning more about the role that housing partnerships play in ending homelessness! ECHO cultivates robust partnerships with property owners and managers to house individuals experiencing homelessness.   These housing partnerships are an incredible opportunity for property owners and management companies of any size to be a part of the solution to ending homelessness in Austin, while simultaneously meeting their business needs.

The ECHO Community Housing Team commits to meeting both the needs of their housing partners and those of the individuals they serve, by recognizing that building strong relationships with either requires honesty, responsiveness and accountability.

Understanding that each business is unique, ECHO adopts a tailored approach to each partner’s specific needs. Benefits that the ECHO program can provide to its landlord partners in a negotiated partnership are:

  • Quickly-filled vacancies
  • One centralized place to connect to various programs
  • Case Management Services
  • Landlord Outreach Services
  • Rental and Deposit Assistance
  • Availability Payments
  • Risk Mitigation Funds

To learn more about how this work fits into your business plan, you can reach the ECHO Community Housing Department at housing@austinecho.org.
