focus on the children
At Comfort House, we focus on supplying kids’ essential needs—including food, clothing, school supplies, and a safe place to study and play.
The Comfort House gives kids meals and snacks that fight an empty stomach and promote good health. We also make sure they have well-fitting clothes and shoes so the children can begin each day feeling comfortable and confident. Finally, we provide backpacks full of necessary supplies so that the kids enter the classroom prepared to learn and succeed.
Once these basics are provided, we show them what Austin has to offer, providing opportunities for growth and education through our Explore Program and Camp Flo. Our hope is to enrich the kids’ lives, build their sense of community, and guide them as they discover their passion and shape their future goals.
Strengthen the community
The kids will also learn to give back to their community in similar ways to how they are being helped. These activities will include:
- Delivering items from the food pantry to those in need
- Assembling and delivering food baskets to seniors
- Cleaning up their neighborhoods
- Beautifying their environment through art projects
BUILD THE FUTURE
As the program develops, the kids of Florence's Comfort House will also be encouraged to recognize need and to give back by assisting the younger children in their neighborhoods through mentoring and tutoring programs.
We invite you to join in our efforts by purchasing Comfort House Art, or making a donation to Florence's Comfort House.
