HEALTH FOR AUSTIN CHILDREN
Programs to support a healthy and stable childhood ensure foster youth and every child have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
CHILD WELFARE & FAMILY STABILITY
Foster care can be life-altering for children and their families. We invest in services that create greater opportunities for a healthy, stable future, from housing and legal advocacy to therapy and parent coaching.
Adverse childhood experiences may lead to mental and behavioral health challenges. Many of our nonprofit partners in Central Texas provide counseling, therapy, case management, trauma-informed training, and parent coaching that help children build resilience and coping skills. These are the skills that children need to help them stay engaged in the classroom, build stronger family relationships at home, and improve their overall health and well-being.
Education & College Access in Greater Austin
All students deserve access to a quality education to prepare them for college and careers. We expand K-12 and higher education options for students to prepare them for in-demand careers.
To help more students get an education that will set them up for success, we support programs with proven results in implementing innovative models and ensuring students from low-income areas gain the knowledge and skills to advance their education and careers.
When students earn a college degree or a certificate, they can seek quality jobs that move them out of poverty. We partner with community organizations like Austin Community College and Huston-Tillotson University to make higher education possible for more students in our region. Our college success programs help students manage their finances, academics, and personal circumstances along the way.
ECONOMIC MOBILITY IN GREATER AUSTIN
Families must have steady and sufficient income to meet their children’s needs. We fund programs that connect people of all ages to skills training and job placement, support micro-entrepreneurs, and link families with local resources.
JOBS & LIVELIHOODS
We work to identify job needs in Central Texas and foster a regional career pipeline, equipping individuals with the training, experience, and connections to access quality jobs with family-sustaining wages. Employers and employees both benefit from stronger job placement and retention .
FAMILY ECONOMIC STABILITY
With access to financial coaching and resources to improve their economic stability, families are better positioned to increase their savings, improve financial security, and advance the health and education of their children.
NONPROFIT COMMUNITY IN GREATER AUSTIN
When nonprofits can provide more effective and integrated services to their communities, individuals can more easily access the resources they need to forge a pathway to prosperity for themselves and their families.
Many Central Texans from low-income backgrounds face barriers to accessing social services. We work with local organizations to increase people’s use of resources that promote education, economic stability, and resilience through integrated data systems and service delivery.
