Donations needed to build a neighborhood

Tuesday, December 20, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Other Ones Foundation is seeking donors to help it complete its $400,000 campaign to build the fourth neighborhood at the Esperanza Community in North Austin. The new neighborhood of small homes and shelters for those experiencing homelessness will help house 50 people and provide basic hygiene and support services for those living in the community. The nonprofit, which helps manage Esperanza and provides low-barrier employment opportunities to the homeless, has raised just over $160,000 and hopes to complete the fundraising drive by the end of the year so construction can finish next year. Thus far, the Other Ones Foundation has helped 50 former residents of the site find stable housing. After construction concludes, up to 250 people will able to use the transitional shelter complex at peak times. For more information and to give, visit toofound.org/cbn.
