Caritas of Austin
Since 1964, Caritas has been working to provide resources to individuals and families living in poverty. The organization provides food, housing, employment, education, and refugee resettlement services. The primary mission of Caritas is to help clients gain the ability to be self-sufficient.
Feeding the hungry is a major aspect of the Caritas vision because the food services provide a gateway for many Caritas clients to attain housing, employment, and stability. Every year, the Caritas community kitchen serves 85,000 nutritious meals to the hungry and provides more than 43,000 meals worth of take-home groceries from the food pantry. The organization also provides more than 4,000 grocery vouchers to needy families and individuals.
Caritas of Austin is able to provide these crucial services thanks to generous donations like the collection gathered by ABC Home & Commercial Services’ Austin branch.
