The Other Ones Foundation
Enhancing the Lives of Families Experiencing Homelessness
The Other Ones Foundation offers low-barrier work opportunities, case management, and humanitarian aid to people experiencing homelessness in Austin, Texas. 54% of those served are people of color. Since their inception in 2017, TOOF has helped 300 clients move into stable housing, paid out over $2,000,000 in earned income to people experiencing homelessness, and moved more than 2,000,000 pounds of trash out of green spaces in Austin. TOOF is currently building the Esperanza Community Shelter Complex, which will include four neighborhoods that will offer clients the ability to have an address and access to resources including physical and mental health support, food, and hygiene.
Goal: The Impact Austin grant will pay for the salary of a data analyst for one year to assist with data collection and analysis, quality assurance, and evaluation of the effectiveness of TOOF programming. Data is critical for equity in service provision and continued growth that aligns with community needs.
