Street Youth Ministry

We target our ministry to street-dependent young people and travelers in Austin.  They are often invisible and unwanted and, as a result, many are very mobile. Their needs are quite different than a typical older homeless person. The vast majority of Street Youth Ministry’s clients are between the age of 17 and 25. No firm age limits are held but services are reserved for those who fit into one of the street youth sub-cultures.

Street Youth Ministry aims to provide magazines to pull homeless youth out of their day to day search for survival and inspire them to dream big again. Because of magazines transportability and availability, despite socioeconomic status, we believe they can create a sense of rising expectations.
