Partnerships for Children works with a number of other non-profit organizations and community groups to provide CPS kids with resources that help provide a sense of normalcy to their lives. The following are supplemental programs that work toward the goal of helping these children to feel just like any other child.
Back to School Backpacks
In partnership with Operation School Bell and the National Charity Bell, PC helps foster kids prepare for the upcoming school year. Caseworkers sign their kids up with the Rainbow Room and we supply them with backpacks and the necessary school supplies.
In partnership with the National Charity League, PC collects and distributes Easter baskets to families every year. The baskets can be picked up by caseworkers and distributed to families. These are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Thanksgiving Food Baskets
PC partners with Austin Apartment Association to collect and distribute boxes of food that not only provide “all the fixin’s” for a Thanksgiving meal for four, but also provides enough food for that family to eat for a week. Caseworkers can get meals for their families, but the supply is limited and they’re distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
