Secular Group Showcase: Austin Atheists Helping the Homeless

We asked you to tell us about your local secular group in an attempt to encourage the start-up and growth of “good without god” communities. We’ve received a lot of responses already (Thanks!) and here’s a glimpse at our next group: The Austin Atheists Helping the Homeless in Texas.

If you’re looking to get your group involved in community service, this crew is one to take notes from! They do an amazing job of pulling resources and volunteers together to supply the homeless with the items that most people take for granted.

They even offer advice to others looking to do something similar:

“Find your niche and stay focused on your group’s mission. Be willing to tweak your process often. Take advantage of the strengths of your volunteers. Venture beyond your community’s secular resources and you just may find supporters in the most unexpected places.”
