KHOPE: Kids of HOPE
Helping kids cope today for a better tomorrow.
NO KID…ever wants to live in a home that isn’t safe.
NO KID…asks for the house where there’s no food or clean laundry, where nobody’s paying attention or taking care of them.
NO KID…wants to get beaten up regularly
NO KID…ever asks to be abused.
Unfortunately, thousands of kids in Austin do live in homes where bad things happen. That’s why we’re here. KHOPE is made up of kids like you who support Austin Children’s Shelter, a safe place for kids to go when they can’t stay at home anymore. Kids of all ages — BABIES TO YOUTH — can stay at Austin Children’s Shelter for a short time, or, if living with a parent is just not an option, they can stay for years, learning the skills they need to live on their own once they’re grown-ups.
NO KID…wants to grow up in a shelter, and we think it stinks that some kids have to.
That’s why we started KHOPE – so that kids who are lucky enough to have “forever” homes can help kids who don’t.
Let’s work together to help every kid grow up safe.
