Hope Alliance was founded in 1984 as a rape crisis center, Hope Alliance celebrated 25 years of service to the community in 2009. The agency expanded to include services for domestic violence victims in the late 1980s and opened the 24-hour emergency shelter in 1990. Since then, it has established outreach offices in Georgetown, Cedar Park, Taylor and Hutto to facilitate the delivery of services across Williamson County. In 2004, a county-wide Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) was established with Hope Alliance as a founding member. Also in 2004, collaboration with the American Housing Foundation resulted in the establishment of the 183 Corridor Transitional Housing program for victims of family violence. Today Hope Alliance is recognized nationally as a leader in caring for those whose lives have been affected by family and sexual violence. All services are free and confidential.

Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) is a 501(c) 3 (nonprofit) organization run almost exclusively by dedicated volunteers. We are implementing innovative and progressive programs in Austin and Central Texas after studying the best practices of other cities who are no-kill or are in the process of becoming no-kill. We have created our own “road map” that uses a lot of experience from many different places as well as incorporating the unique characteristics of the Austin area. Austin is rich in prevention resources such as spay/neuter, compared to other cities, and we are filling the gaps in service areas that have been historically under-represented, such as high volume, high quality adoption. We are currently focused on helping the healthy and treatable pets who are at risk of being killed in a shelter, by rescuing the pets who are at the greatest risk and helping owners who are having problems so great that they need to surrender their pet(s) to a shelter.
 
The Capital Area Food Bank of Texas, a 501c(3) non-profit, is the largest hunger-relief charity in Central Texas providing food and grocery products, nutrition education and social services outreach to 300,000 clients each year through a network of 300 Partner Agencies. In 1981, a small group of concerned Austinites from the United Urban Council (the predecessor of today' Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT)) and individuals from several community organizations formed the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas, Inc. They recognized the need for emergency food assistance, as well as the availability of surplus food from various food companies and grocery stores that might otherwise go to waste. In March 1982, CAFB was incorporated under the Texas Non-Profit Corporation Act, and in 1983 CAFB became a certified member of Feeding America. The Capital Area Food Bank of Texas is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization. In its 31st year of service, the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas (CAFB) provides food and grocery products to more than 300 Partner Agencies in 21 Central Texas counties. In Fiscal Year 2010-11, CAFB provided more than 24 million pounds of food. The CAFB service area covers 19,064 square miles in Central Texas. The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to nourish hungry people and lead the community in ending hunger.
