About the Austin Children's Shelter
Austin Children’s Shelter protects and heals children, young adults and families in need. ACS provides a safe home and supportive services for children, youth and young adults from birth to 22 who have experienced significant loss, trauma, abuse and/or neglect in their lives. Emergency shelter is provided for children ages birth to 18 years old, including teen parents in foster care with their infants and toddlers. Young men and women aged 17-22, who are “aging-out” of the foster care system, are served through a Transitional Living Program. This program provides youth and young adults with skills necessary to make the transition to independent living. In 2011, ACS provided more than 19,000 days of care for children and youth.
