Front Steps manages the ARCH (Austin Resource Center for the Homeless), which serves as the first point of entry for many of Austin’s homeless population by providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing. Front Steps’ supportive housing programs provides subsidized, scattered-site housing with intensive case management and other support services to ensure the successful housing and community integration of each client.

Meet Jimmy Stubbs…
Originally from Fort Worth, Jimmy moved to Austin for an employment opportunity. Once in Austin, Jimmy immediately contacted his future employer, but the position was no longer available. Jimmy was devastated. He had no income and no place to live. With nowhere else to turn, Jimmy was forced to enter the ARCH Emergency Shelter.
