Austin Angels


The Austin Angels mission is to walk alongside children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building and mentorship.

50% of foster families close down in a year due to lack of support. Austin Angels seeks to bridge the gap between what the government provides and what the whole family needs to be successful. Learn more about Austin Angels here.

Ongoing Needs

As a group, adopt a foster family and participate in the Love Box program. This will be a one-year commitment and your group will create one Love Box a month and deliver it to your adopted foster family. You can read the full requirements for the Love Box program here.
"It's awesome to see what can get done when a group of people come together in a united effort. We were able to fill 2 boxes full of gifts and essentials for 2 families and provide for them in a big way."

- Jennie Quillen

Not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but everyone can make a difference in a child's life.

This is a powerful video that shows how people from our community can make a powerful difference in a family that receives foster children.
