Carrying Hope is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by foster parents and advocates who were tired of seeing foster children arrive to their doorsteps with nothing. We work directly with CPS and with child-placement agencies in Central Texas to distribute our Hope Packs, which are filled with everything a child needs during his or her first 48 hours in foster care. Since we formed in July 2016, we have distributed more than 2,000 Hope Packs to children entering foster care in Region 7. Our volunteers consist of both adults and children, and children are welcome to participate in all of our volunteer opportunities, from making Hope Packs to stuffing toiletry kits. Please check our website and Facebook page for more information and upcoming volunteer opportunities — we’d love to see you soon!
