Our affordable housing communities provide more than just a roof over people’s heads.

We also offer a wide range of opportunities for our residents and neighbors to transform their lives through on-site support services in the areas of
education, financial stability and health.

On-site support services in the areas of education, financial stability, and health.

Meet Allen

While painting houses, Allen fell off a ladder and broke his back. The injury put him in a wheelchair and the devastation and pain of it all made it difficult to keep a steady job. Allen was living in an abandoned shack before moving into Capital Studios downtown. At his new home, he has a circle of friends and critical support services right at his doorstep.

Meet Leslie

When Leslie and her three sons moved into an Austin homeless shelter, she felt like her world was crumbling. But as soon as she learned about Foundation Communities, everything changed. Since moving into M Station, Leslie has taken advantage of our education and financial stability programs. With our support, she’s back on her feet and has big plans for the future.
