SAVE THE DATE for Carrying Hope’s annual Summer Drives!

Houston: Sunday, July 10, 2022 || Austin: Thursday, July 21, 2022

It’s that time of year again –– Hope the Hedgehog’s 6th Birthday and the 6th anniversary of Carrying Hope becoming a 501c3 nonprofit –– and we’re splashing into summer by hosting fun-filled pool parties in both Austin (July 21) and Houston (July 10) for 60 children and teens living in local shelters and residential treatment centers. In addition to a splashy day of fun in the sun, each of these kids will go home with Hope Packs containing $100 gift cards so they can shop for new clothes that will enable them to enter the new school year with some added confidence and style.
Can you help us by donating $50 or $100 toward the purchase of gift cards for these deserving children and teens? Find details and sign up here!

Fostering Love Gala

March 2023

We are still basking in the glow of our Fifth Annual Fostering Love Gala, which raised a record-breaking amount that will allow us to greatly expand our services for children in foster care. Check out these wonderful photos of this heartwarming, impactful evening taken by Ross Lucksinger Photography. We hope you will join us for our 6th Annual Fostering Love Gala in March 2023! 

Houston Fundraiser

May 2023

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Carrying Hope Houston’s inaugural fundraiser on May 5! We had so much fun at this  Cinco de Mayo-themed event raising funds to expand Carrying Hope Houston’s programming! Special thanks to White Rhino for hosting this incredible evening, and to our amazing sponsors and hardworking Houston committee! 

Attend a Themed Volunteer Event at Our Office

We offer one in-office themed volunteer opportunity each month, ranging from a "Girls Night Out" to a "Date Night" to a "Donuts and Doing Good" morning for kids. These activities are $50 per person and include all Hope Pack supplies, snacks, beverages and more; max of 20 participants.

July - Donuts And Doing Good

Friday, July 15, 10:30-11:30 a.m.

There’s nothing better than kids helping kids, and when doughnuts are involved, it really can’t get any sweeter! This experience includes all of the supplies you’ll need to create a Hope Pack that will go directly to a child entering foster care as well as doughnuts, juice and coffee (for the grownups). Age limit 6 and up.
