Referral Process


Foundation for the Homeless works with most of the homeless service providers in the Austin area to coordinate services.  All potential clients are asked to complete a Coordinated Assessment (CA, also known as Coordinated Entry).  Information on how and where to do this can be found at  You can also get this information and other potential options by calling 2-1-1.


ECHO provides Foundation for the Homeless and other providers with list of potential clients that best fit their programs.  Completing a CA will provide you with greater opportunities for receiving needed services.

If you are seeking services:  Foundation for the Homeless accepts client referrals from the Austin/ Travis Country Continuum of Care Coordinated Assessment list.


In order to be accepted into Foundation for the Homeless services, individuals must complete the Coordinated Assessment.
