Hi from Austin, Texas! Solid Ground Ministry is a female founded and run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization geared towards helping ease the burden of homelessness in our community. Solid Ground Ministry was started in November of 2019 and has since held free events every single month for individuals in the Austin area experiencing homelessness. Since launching, we have served hundreds of individuals to help address basic, every day needs, provide support for job and housing placements, and help connect our people with essential resources. We saw a significant increase in the need for aid and assistance since the pandemic hit as well, and have continued to serve our community safely throughout.
We are now asking for financial help and donations to help provide one of the most basic needs for our guests: showers and laundry services. These are two of the most basic yet oftentimes denied services for individuals experiencing homelessness in the Austin area, especially with the pandemic and reduction of human services in our community. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to purchase a 20’8” portable, modular building that will give us 3 individual, secure shower units and 2 washer/dryer machines. Our hope is to purchase our hygiene facility and began providing individuals experiencing homelessness a safe place to shower and do their laundry (both free of charge) 3 times per week. We cannot do so without the support and generosity of those with hearts to give.
Please consider giving to our campaign and helping us with our goal! No donation is too little, as every bit helps get us closer to our goal and ability to provide these most basic needs for those we serve. Also please share our campaign with friends, colleagues, likeminded businesses, and on social media accounts to help us spread the word and reach more people.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support!
