Austin's Place

An Emergency Shelter for Homeless Women


Austin's Place is the only emergency shelter for single women in Champaign County. Austin’s Place operates solely on volunteer effort - from volunteers who stay overnight, transport guests, do laundry, make phone calls, advertise, collect donations, etc. Dedicated service meets significant needs and provides valuable support to all the guests that come through our doors. We are thankful for all the faithful volunteers who so generously give their time, energy, prayers, and financial support! Austin's Place happens because of our volunteers!
