Central Texas Food Bank

Central Texas Table of Grace was just recently awarded a grant by Glimmer of Hope to hire a Chef for our kiddos! We were one of 6 recipients selected out of almost 100 applicants! Our new Chef will be cooking delicious, healthy meals from scratch! She is very excited to start planning for an above-ground garden, and to start teaching bi-weekly classes, such as "Safely using a Stove", "How to make a healthy smoothie", How to properly chop your veggies", etc.) Many of these kids age out of foster care with very few life skills. We are changing for our kids one day at a time!

Our monthly rent is $2,100 for our modest warehouse. YOU are what make Austin Diaper Bank a reality- kind people who care about others in their community.

Caritas of Austin

For over 50 years, Caritas of Austin has served our most vulnerable neighbors when they do not have a stable place to call home. We help build wellbeing by providing people with safe housing, jobs, life skills, and food. Our goal is to end homelessness as we know it in Austin and to help others reach their full potential. This past year, Caritas of Austin was a leader in the achievement of "ending" veteran homelessness, placed over 500 people in jobs, and continued to increase services in north Austin at our Caritas North location. The past year has brought great uncertainty with regard to Caritas' 40-year history of resettling refugees who are fleeing persecution. Now more than ever we are relying on the community's support to ensure these services continue while federal funds are paused.

Well Aware

Almost 1 billion people do not have access to clean water. And for every dollar that is donated to the water crisis, only a small fraction is making an impact. Approximately 60 percent of the existing wells in Africa don't work because of poor project planning, shortage of technical attention, environmental mistakes, and lack of community involvement. A broken water well introduces an economic and health disaster for a previously flourishing people, and tears communities apart. If you are a contributor to Well Aware, you can be assured that your donation is still providing water. Our proven and sustainability model guarantees that our water systems will continue to work for decades, with exponential impact from project planning and partner contributions. In 2017 we are launching a new technology and we are adding Tanzania as one of the countries we are working in.

We Are Blood

In 2016, We Are Blood launched a new name and a new identity (we were The Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas). But we're still the same locally owned and operated organization we have been since 1951. And we're still the only community blood supply in town. We boldly believe that the local blood supply is a precious shared resource that bonds us all, and one of the few things with the power to bring our diverse community together.

Meals on Wheels of Williamson Burnet County

Opportunities Meals on Wheels served over 148,000 meals to seniors during the last fiscal year. We hope to surpass this during the current fiscal year by reaching 10,000 additional seniors. By providing hot, nutritious meals to senior homebound clients, we enable them to live independently longer and they are able to "age in place". Through good nutrition, client conditions are sustainable and continued independence is achieved. Congregate meals served at five senior centers throughout Williamson & Burnet Counties also provide hot, nutritionally balanced meals to seniors, as well as activities, socialization opportunities and well-checks. The program, along with local partners, not only provides hot nutritious chef-prepared meals, but also referrals to and resources from other senior services.

Austin Pets Alive!

In 2017, Austin Pets Alive! anticipates it will save its 50,000th pet at risk of being killed elsewhere. In addition to continuing to save Central Texas pets, APA! will also be actively helping other communities across the country learn our lifesaving programs, through internships and hands-on training at our facility, and at our seventh annual American Pets Alive! conference. APA! is also working with Maddie's Fund (R) and research teams to better help shelters understand treatment of diseases most commonly seen at APA!, such as parvo and Feline Leukemia Virus. Because we don't kill these pets, but treat them, we have a never-before-available population of these pets.

Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team

The Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team has began working with interested entities to bring Sustainability and Resilience to the Bastrop County community. Our up and coming program will be two-fold, but being prepared is the main focus. We will be working with neighborhoods to empower them to help their neighbor and communicate various emergency needs to BCLTRT and local emergency officials. The second part is engaging other nonprofits, businesses and religious organizations to offer and extend their services and expertise immediately following a disaster or emergency event. We discovered that when there was a region wide disaster involving multiple counties, outside assets to deal with immediate response were taxed beyond their capabilities. So creating our own county plan is imperative.

Over the next 5 years, TreeFolks will reforest riparian buffer zones along 61 miles of the Blanco River in Hays County. The banks of the Blanco were swept clean in the 2015 Memorial Day weekend floods. We will replant trees along the river that clean the water, support wildlife, and reduce flooding.
