During Austin's frigid February weather, Trinity Center and St. David's opened their doors so neighbors could come in from the cold. Trinity Center stayed open for extended hours and when it filled up, neighbors were welcomed into Edens Gym at St. David's for movies and hospitality. A warm place to be and warm hearts have greeted Trinity Center's neighbors during this exceptionally cold winter.
Trinity Center is pleased to announce it has received two generous grants already in 2011! The Baxter Trust and the Women’s Fund of Austin have each presented Trinity Center with $25,000.
It's Trinity Center's biggest event of the year, and we hope you will join us! The 2011 Barbara Jordan Luncheon will be held Tuesday, March 1, from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Austin (500 East 4th Street).
Friends and supporters of Trinity Center will gather to remember our generous benefactor Barbara Jordan, thank our current supporters, and reach out to new ones in our mission to help individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Austin.
This year's keynote speaker is Turk Pipkin, well-known writer, actor, and director. His latest works, "One Peace at a Time" and "Nobelity," demonstrate how the efforts of individuals can make a real difference in our world.
Proceeds from the luncheon are a significant fundraiser for Trinity Center and support our mission of improving the spiritual, mental, and physical well-being of people experiencing homelessness and poverty in downtown Austin.
