KINDLY HEARTS INITIATIVE
The Kindly Hearts Initiative is our long-term philanthropy that is focused on service and fundraising to support children and teens experiencing foster care or homelessness. Alpha Xi Delta believes that all children deserve to be loved and supported. We proudly aid local organizations that strive to care for these vulnerable populations.
HOW DOES THE KINDLY HEARTS INITIATIVE WORK?
To support the Kindly Hearts Initiative, each active Alpha Xi Delta chapter creates opportunities to support key impact organizations and local impact organizations. Key impact organizations focus on making a difference on national or regional levels, while our local impact organizations focus on the Austin area. The Beta Alpha chapter strives to support the organizations that fall under our philanthropic umbrella through annual events such as Taco Xi and our fundraising gala Casino Night.
OUR LOCAL IMPACT ORGANIZATION: HELPING HAND HOME
Texas Alpha Xi Delta is incredibly grateful for our local impact organization, Helping Hand Home. Helping Hand Home provides a safe haven for children experiencing foster care who are healing from abuse, neglect, and abandonment. The non-profit organization was founded by a group of women in 1893 and is the longest-running residential childcare agency in Austin. Helping Hand Home strives to support each child and return them to healthy family settings through therapeutic residential treatment, family support, adoption, foster care, and educational programs. The Beta Alpha chapter is so proud and excited to continue supporting this incredible organization through in-person volunteering with the children and fundraising efforts.
