Mission: The primary mission of comfort house is to care for the children of montopolis, where families confront poverty, unemployment, drugs, prostitution and violence every day. Comfort house provides a safe haven for many neighborhood children after school and on weekends. Comfort house provides meals, snacks, clean clothes, baths, new underwear and shoes, educational materials, outings and activities. In addition, many others are assisted on a case-by case basis. This aid includes delivering nutritious food to elderly residents, and helping teenagers and adults through temporary difficulties.
Programs: At comfort house, we focus on supplying kids essential needsincluding food, clothing, school supplies, and a safe place to study and play. Comfort house gives kids meals and snacks that fight an empty stomach and promote good health. We also make sure they have well-fitting clothes and shoes so the children can begin each day feeling comfortable and confident. In addition, we provide backpacks full of necessary supplies so that the kids enter the classroom prepared to learn and succeed. Once these basics are provided, we show them what austin has to offer, providing opportunities for growth and education through our explore program and camp flo. Our hope is to enrich the kids lives, build their sense of community, and guide them as they discover their passion and shape their future goals.
