About Caritas of Austin
Caritas of Austin, the Trot’s beneficiary for the last 28 years, believes that when every person has a stable place to call home, they can realize their full potential and contribute to our community. Caritas builds well being by making sure that people have a safe home, access to healthy groceries, jobs that provide a reliable living wage, and educational opportunities to learn life skills.
All of us need a sturdy foundation and layers of support in our lives to thrive; that’s what creates a strong community. Caritas’ innovative, personalized and proven approach to building well being and ending homelessness creates a more vibrant Austin for everyone.
