Felecia Burns: The Sisterhood Program

Founded in 1983, Austin Street Center provides safe shelter and meets the basic needs of the most vulnerable homeless that serves men, ages 45 and older, and women, ages 18 and older. Each person who finds shelter with Austin Street Center is provided a safe place to sleep, showers, clothing, and meals. Felecia Burns is an ordained AME minister who previously volunteered to lead services in the Austin Street Center chapel. In 2016, she became the director of the Center’s Sisterhood program, which takes a holistic approach to helping women get back on their feet.
