As part of this year’s Amplify Austin Day, we invite you to participate in A Night Out: An Amplify Challenge.

As part of this year’s Amplify Austin Day, LifeWorks invites you to participate in A Night Out: LifeWorks Amplify Challenge. A Night Out will bring the 24-hours of Amplify Austin to life for community members and supporters who are passionate about ending youth homelessness through philanthropic giving and raising awareness.

Participants wanting to take part in the experiential overnight event must meet their fundraising goals in order to sleep out. Options to fundraise individually or as a team of five (5) or 10 people are available. A Night Out is the perfect experiential event for organizations or businesses looking for team building activities that also support Austin’s only nonprofit dedicated to achieving self-sufficiency for youth and young families experiencing homelessness.

Point In Time Count

Every year the City of Austin conducts an annual Point in Time count. The Point in Time (PIT) Count is where individuals experiencing homelessness in the City of Austin are counted.

The data collected on this one night informs the Federal government how much money Austin needs to support programs and agencies like LifeWorks, for these individuals in the coming year.

If you have participated before, it is a lot of fun and if you haven’t, I would encourage you to volunteer. It takes over 600 volunteers throughout the city to make this happen. 

There is an orientation for everyone who participates, no experience necessary, and you are never alone and always working in teams.

Please consider participating in the PIT Count by signing up below.

Come join us this December for the 2nd annual "Frosty Gives Back" charity event Hosted by Twelve Rivers Reality and Mike Frost.

Last year was a huge success raising over $16,000 dollars for the three charities involved. This year, LifeWorks, Explore Austin and Hope Outdoor Gallery are the beneficiaries.

There are a lot of different ways you can help our three charity organizations while getting some cool swag and prizes. There will be a very unique silent auction, photo ops with Santa, a chance to purchase an "ugly" graffiti Christmas sweater created live by Zuzu Kelly Perkal and a number of other ways. 

So come out and help support this great cause during the holidays and have a great time doing it! There is no RSVP, just show up ready to dance and have a great night. No cost for admittance, but donations are suggested. 

Every little bit helps!
