Every dollar strengthens our community, where we need it most.

Let’s Live United.

Our community is stronger together.

The Greater Austin area often tops the lists of best places to live. A great place to raise a family, a healthy local economy, a city poised for future job growth. But not everyone in our community is sharing in that promise. Yet.

Our region’s current reality…

1 in 10
households is considered low-income.

4 in 5
single-parents families with low income are working hard, either full or part time, and are still unable to meet their basic needs

3 in 5
children don’t get the early education they need to succeed.

We are working towards a Greater Austin where…

All children enter Kindergarten happy, healthy, and prepared to succeed.

Families with children are financially stable.

All children are reading on grade level by the 4th grade.

People are connected to resources for food, housing, transportation, and more.

And we need your help to do this.
