What is Mission Accomplished?

Mission Accomplished is a nonprofit organization with its federal 501(c)(3) status which currently serves the Greater Austin area.  The organization's primary goal is to provide resources and assistance to individuals and families that need a helping hand to reach the next level.  The overall goal is to teach them to maintain that level and soar beyond.  The organization's future goal is to provide temporary housing, meals, and care packages to homeless men, women and children as they move from dependent, often abusive relationships into independent, self-sufficient and healthy lifestyles.

What will you do?

To do what we do, we need the best and brightest in our team. We are looking for someone who is passionate about social business and keen to jump into action to help us turn on the lights.
