Lifeworks’ In Our Shoes Challenge is an annual community-building campaign that will bring together 10 corporate and community teams, as well as LifeWork’s youth, for one night.

The goal is to raise awareness of youth homelessness in Austin and galvanize the community as the city organizes to End Youth Homelessness by 2020.

Participants will have an opportunity to share a meal with our youth and hear their stories, while learning about their experiences with homelessness. Afterwards, participants will sleep outside, simulating what it is like to be homeless for a night based on youth input. All proceeds raised will support LifeWorks’ 19 programs that fall under Housing, Counseling, Education and Workforce.

LifeWorks clients include former foster care youth, former and current homeless youth, and teen parents, all working towards their path to self-sufficiency. LifeWorks is committed to having a positive, sustaining impact on our community that will last generations. We invite you and your company to participate in the second annual In Our Shoes Challenge.

Join us on Saturday, February 9, starting at 6 p.m., at LifeWorks South. For more information, please contact our Department of Development at
