Support Austin's Simple Plan to Reduce Homelessness by 20%

Austin is considering a plan that could provide permanent homes for 20 percent of the city's homeless population. The city council is currently debating donating land to Mobile Loaves & Fishes, a charity that would set up 100 trailers there.

According to Mobile Loaves & Fishes in Austin, 40 people are already housed in 34 of their trailers around Austin. More than 85 percent of these residents have maintained stable housing for over a year.

Mobile Loaves & Fishes plans to do all the fundraising needed to buy the RV trailers and establish the trailer park, so the taxpayers wouldn't be responsible for it. Everyone wins. 

Send a letter of support encouraging Austin's mayor and city council to support the donation of land for the trailer park as soon as possible.
