New name, new website, same mission.
We are proud to announce Austin Atheists Helping the Homeless is changing our name to Austin Humanists at Work. Why are we doing this?
There are many reasons why we changed our name. First, the old name was extremely long and was a borderline tongue twister. Second, we felt the term “homeless” in the name didn’t truly represent every person who comes through our line. We also help those who have fallen on hard times and just need a little help from their community. Third, we are a group that has grown to include people from all walks of life. Volunteers include people who are atheists, agnostic, secular, freethinkers and even those who are theists. Inclusivity has made us grow stronger and more organized. While we are still very proud of who we are and where we started, we want to grow with our community and show all humans can truly help others without labels at all. We are genuinely helping because we love our city and want to help in any way we can. Lastly, we are still the same group of people who are very proud and thankful for all who have kept this organization going.
