Austin’s House provides emergency shelter and compassionate care for up to 10 children between the ages of birth to 18. The children who are placed at Austin’s House have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. Austin’s House provides care to both boys and girls who are unable to be maintained in their own homes, until they are either reunited with their family or an appropriate long term placement is made. Under the guidance of the placement agency, Austin’s House supports each child’s educational, health, and emotional needs. Whenever possible, children stay in the school they attended before being placed at Austin’s House. Austin’s House collaborates with other agencies to help provide support to children and families in need in our local communities.
