Austin Stone partners with Reliant, a leading non profit fund raising organization for support raising training, coaching, accountability, donations and payroll. (Residents are employed by Reliant)
Every resident accepted into the program is required to attend a 5-day fundraising intensive workshop, where they are equipped by the Reliant Team with the knowledge and skills to raise financial support. The Reliant team works with residents to determine support goals and preparation for employment.
All residents are responsible for getting to the training. Austin Stone offers this training at no expense. Housing during this training and one meal each day is provided by ASI.
