Foundation Communities Holiday Assistance Program
COVID-19 has posed a challenge to many traditional "adopt-a-family" programs. This holiday season, the Austin Awesome Foundation opted to funnel $1000 to Foundation Communities, where the money was used to provide gift cards to residents in supportive housing. Providing direct cash assistance allowed these families flexibility in choosing how to spend these funds — to purchase gifts for their kids, to prepare a special holiday meal, or to cover basic living expenses.
