:::About The Other Ones Foundation:::
TOOF offers extremely low barrier employment to people experiencing homelessness, and pairs this with highly personalized case management aimed to break down barriers to stable housing and income. TOOF also operates a drop-in center in South Austin where folks can shower, do laundry, and access computers, food, day-sleep facilities, and case management. The center also serves as a safe place for people to just be away from the stresses of life on the street. So far, TOOF has helped 31 people find housing, paid out over $167,000 in earned income to people experiencing homelessness, and moved over 200,000 lbs of trash out of green spaces in South Austin.
