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. The Austin Angels serve just under 200 children in Central Texas, and there are currently over 5,600 children in foster homes or substitute care services in Central Texas alone. Their long-term vision is to open chapters in every major metropolitan city in the nation, so every single child in foster care in the United States will be supported and empowered to succeed.
The Love Box program provides foster families with community and holistic support so that they can continue to do the important and meaningful work of being a foster parent. As a Love Box volunteer, you will be matched with a local foster family based on compatibility and scope of needs. When families are matched with committed volunteers that show up monthly, parents feel supported and children gain a sense of belonging and self confidence. This program requires a one-year commitment.
Angel Ambassadors are passionately committed to making a difference by investing capital and sharing the responsibility of caring for children in the foster care system. Ambassador memberships start at $25 per month, and benefits include a personal phone call from the head of Angel Ambassadors.
