Description

This non-profit community center in Austin shares the building with an SRO and a homeless shelter. Truly mixed-use, the upper floors offer affordable housing as another key community resource. The building was a former YMCA built in 1923 and vacated in 2012. The ACFC collaborates with community partners to offer social services, recreation, and cultural programs geared toward local adults and youth in trying to maintain some of the former tradition of the YMCA. This includes a computer lab, 2 basketball gyms, fitness facilities, and meeting rooms with more programs to come.
