We are honored to give Gathering Tables to the following outreach organizations in the Austin area whose common mission is to provide support and hope to those in need. For tables purchased, we will donate a new table to a qualified outreach organization.
Community First! Village
Community First Village is a place that enables our homeless brothers and sisters to heal. It’s a place where they can rediscover hope, renew their purpose and restore their dignity. Most importantly, it’s a place they can call home.
Caritas of Austin
For over 50 years, Caritas of Austin has been a turning point in people’s lives. Each year we serve thousands of families and individuals who do not have a stable place to call home. Through comprehensive, relationship-based services, Caritas of Austin turns crisis into stability and empowers people toward the life they want. We believe that a thriving community derives its strength from providing all members the opportunity to be self-reliant.
Caritas of Austin's mission is to provide a service continuum for those experiencing poverty that begins with a safety net and links them to resources to achieve self-sufficiency.
The Refuge provides long-term, holistic care in a pastoral and peaceful setting for girls ages 11-17, who have been rescued out of sex trafficking. Each girl will have her own plan of restoration based on a comprehensive approach to long-term residential care which will include on site education services, medical care, therapeutic programs such as gardening, equine, art, music and pet therapy, along with one-on-one counseling and group therapy with licensed professional therapists. The girls are housed in distinctively designed cottages that not only provide safety and security, but also a sense of family and community.
