Hope For the Holidays

From the twinkling lights that set entire streets aglow to the nostalgic holiday tunes that fill grocery and department stores, there’s no season quite as magical as the holidays. But for youth in the foster care system who are residing in local shelters and residential treatment centers and spending the holidays without families, this time of year can be dark and lonely. 


How you can help

Please join Carrying Hope in making the holidays merry and bright for foster youth this holiday season!

If you would like to join us in spreading some extra hope and joy during the holiday season, please consider sponsoring gift cards and holiday celebrations for one or more of these deserving kids. Your kindness and generosity will ensure that these kids do not get overlooked, and we are so very grateful for the joy you will be bringing them during a time of year that is joyous for so many of us. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Be a holiday event sponsor

If you would like to join us in spreading some extra hope and joy to 40 Houston-area foster youth during the holiday season, please consider sponsoring their attendance at their upcoming holiday celebrations or becoming a corporate sponsor.

This year, Carrying Hope is providing $50 gift cards as well as special holiday-themed outings, celebrations and meals to more than 50 foster youth, teens and young adults aging out of the system who are residing at three different Austin-area RTCs and shelters.
