Description and Prayer


Homeless to Housed, LINC Austin Outreach, Austin


This mission grant will help LINC Austin Outreach continue mobile street outreach in the Austin/Travis County area to locate and engage individuals experiencing homelessness. LINC helps navigate the homeless into housing, aids them to overcome obstacles such as attaining identifying documents, and provides basic needs.

Almighty and most merciful God, You have promised never to leave us nor forsake us but to abide with us to the end of time. Provide those who are homeless with people who, in wisdom and sympathy, will minister to them in their need, consider the road they have walked and do their best to provide hope and love, all the while pointing them to Jesus; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
