Let’s Do Something

Let’s help our homeless neighbors in the Austin Area.

Resiliency Kits are needed to provide for the basic needs of the homeless. ACF is partnering with The Other Ones Foundation, a local non-profit foundation that helps the homeless in the Camp Esperanza (Hope) Community here in Austin, to provide these kits. Read below for specific needs and then bring your donations to ACF on March 14th.
