Nowhere To Go: Homelessness In Austin

Nowhere To Go

Our podcast mini-series on homelessness continues with a focus on emergency shelter, which is meant to provide people with a safe place to sleep (temporarily), while they work to get connected to more permanent housing. But in Austin, we don’t have enough emergency shelter beds, which can mean long wait lists, just to find a place to sleep that isn’t outside.


How do our shelters deal with this? And how does emergency shelter in Austin work anyway? To help answer these questions, host Amy Stansbury spoke with Max Moscoe and David Gomez of The Other Ones Foundation (which runs Esperanza Community) and Kirkpatrick Tyler of Urban Alchemy (which runs the ARCH).
