Foundation Communities

The holiday season is right around the corner! As you make plans with family and friends, we hope you’ll consider participating in our Holiday Assistance Program to help our residents fulfill their wish lists. With your support, we can make the holidays brighter for the families who live with us!

Here are four ways you can get involved:

Sponsor a Family

Sponsoring a family is a great way to engage your family, coworkers, friends, neighbors, congregation or civic club in a rewarding group service activity. Visit the Sponsor Registration Page for more information and to complete your sponsor form by Thursday, December 5. Sponsor forms received by November 22 will be matched before Thanksgiving. Sign up to sponsor today!

Donate to Our Holiday Gift Drive

Provide items like gift cards, household supplies, toys, and more for our residents. Gift deliveries will be accepted December 11-13. See our wish list.

Make a Holiday Donation

You can donate online and we’ll go shopping for you! Make a donation.

Help us Spread the Word

Forward this message to others! There is a great need in our community. The more people who participate, the more families we can serve.

Thanks for your generosity and support!

Sincerely,

Meghan Hein

Hands on Housing

Our next big housing repair project will be the Raise the Roof on Saturday, October 19, 2019.  We will be painting and doing minor repair work to a number of homes in Austin.  If you are ready to register a team for this event, please fill out this form.  If you would like to volunteer for this event as an individual, there is no need for you to register, but please be sure to contact us at hoh@interfaithtexas.org so we can assign you to a home.

 

Habitat for Humanity

Austin is in a housing crisis.
Everyone knows it. Everyone feels it.

This is why we have come together in partnership with Foundation Communities, Meals on Wheels Central Texas, LifeWorks Austin, Caritas of Austin, HousingWorks Austin and Keep Austin Affordable to advocate for what can be one of the biggest investments in our community for generations: the Affordable Housing Bond.

“Affordable Housing Bond” may sound complicated and over the next few months, you’ll see and hear us talking about it a lot. We’ve put together FAQs that you can use to become informed and to better understand why we are advocating for this — Proposition A — to be voted into effect.

Sign up for our advocacy list to stay up-to-date with the Bond and how you can get involved.
