A Safe Place to Call Home
Learn how Amplify and its Signature Partners are working to improve the lives of those experiencing homelessness in Central Texas.
A Safe Place To Call Home
At Amplify Credit Union, we believe that every Central Texan is entitled to a safe place to call home. Ensuring the basic needs of our neighbors are met – providing them with access to safe and sustainable accommodations – is how we can empower positive futures for families in need. To accomplish this goal, we seek to partner with organizations that provide an array of essential services to the Central Texas community.
From those displaced from their homes due to natural disasters to those experiencing homelessness due to medical or mental health issues, our A Safe Place To Call Home initiative focuses Amplify’s volunteer involvement and philanthropic support toward those most in need in Central Texas.
Signature Nonprofit Partners
There are many great organizations throughout Central Texas who are supporting those in need of a safe place to call home, and we wish we could support them all. However, we’ve found we can create the most meaningful impact when we focus our contributions on a few causes and pursue deep, long-lasting partnerships. In choosing those organizations, we sought input from our members & employees and ultimately selected the following nonprofit partners.
Saint Louise House
Saint Louise House supports women-led families in need of housing, but who lack the minimum income required to qualify for affordable housing programs. By offering families stable housing and wraparound services with highly-individualized support, Saint Louise House connects families to opportunities with education, financial stability, strong family relations and healthy living, all designed to lead to a lifetime self-sufficiency.
American Red Cross of Central & South Texas
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. They aspire to turn compassion into action so that all people affected by disaster across Central Texas receive care, shelter and hope. Through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, the American Red Cross is always there in times of need.
Caritas of Austin
Caritas of Austin aims to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring experience for Austinites. Beginning with a stable home, Caritas offers the families it serves a multilayered approach – including healthy food, connections to jobs and vocational training, and the opportunity to learn life skills – that will ensure homelessness does not define their future. Each person’s path to well-being is tailored to their specific needs and capabilities as an individual.
