The Road to Innovation Podcast, Episode 10: Poverty+Crisis =Homelessness

Thousands of people are homeless in Dallas with many of them needing basic essentials to get the jump start they need for a better life. On this episode of The Road To Innovation, our guest Daniel Roby, CEO of Austin Street Center addresses the epidemic and shares about the people they help. And how they go from homelessness to independence.  


Roby shares a beautiful quote by  Mother Teresa:


"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." - Mother Teresa


About Austin Street: 

"Founded in 1983, Austin Street Center is the largest low barrier shelter  in Dallas that serves men, ages 45 and older, and women, ages 18 and older. Each person who finds shelter with Austin Street Center is provided a safe place to sleep, showers, clothing, and meals.


More than just a meal and a bed, the Austin Street individualized model of service attempts to treat the whole individual through a comprehensive program that includes: housing coordination and stabilization services; employment and education resources; benefits and ID assistance; mental health services on-site; spiritual, emotional, and addiction support; diversion; transportation; and more."
