HOMELESS SHELTER: Presently, Mission Accomplished is headquartered in Austin, Texas and is based out of the home of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and founder , Ebonie Trice, who is CPR certified. She has opened her home to help women and children in need on multiple occasions. She helps single mothers with their children by allowing them to occupy a room in her home. The women and their children have experienced mental and/or financial hardships. Ebonie provides the families with a place to sleep, warmth from the cold, and a safe and positive environment to help them regain their independence.
RESOURCE CENTER: The current resource provided to individuals and families is an Austin, Texas Starter Kit that was created by Ebonie as a resource guide. The starter kit includes valuable information about available government assistance, schools in Travis and Williamson county, apartment finders, how to get financially established, computer classes available, fun activities for families in Austin, a now hiring job listing, and more. The starter kit is a twenty-page booklet that includes information about the Department of Public Safety, 211 (information on health and human services), Child Care Management Services, Capitol Metro, Austin Public Libraries, credit unions, banks, public and charter schools, and more. It gives a description about each business, facility, and/or organization along with contact information, websites, and locations. The Austin, Texas Starter Kit will be given to all residents at the homeless shelter even after expansion.
