Drop-By Austin Info

Our Drop-by Services are offered M-F 12-4pm at our gate. We are only able to serve those 28 years and under who are experiencing homelessness or those 28 and under enrolled in programs to prevent or end homelessness in Austin.

Social distancing of six feet and masks are required for everyone's protection and to help speed the return of jobs in Austin. We take temporary closure breaks if these requirements are not able to be observed.

  • We serve by prioritizing a food plate or sandwich while you wait.
  • Then we bring you other needs like clothing.
  • Most toiletries are self-serviced in a box outside.
  • When weather appropriate, there is a laptop you can access briefly.
  • We have a phone you can use briefly.
  • Food bags (about 5 days) can be requested once a week if you have housing in your name; Camping food bags (about 3 days) can be requested if you are living outside every few days.
