Providing Transitional Housing to Victims of Abuse
We Have a Problem.
Affordable housing in Hays and Caldwell counties is incredibly difficult to find in an ideal situation; factor in the additional safety needs required for a victim of abuse, attempting to leave an abuser, and it becomes near impossible.
Often the mothers are willing to return to a situation that is unsafe for themselves to ensure that their children have a roof over their heads.

We Need Your Help.
Due to the generosity of our lead donors and partners, we have currently raised over $4.8 million to fund this important project. Now, we want to invite the community, including you, to help make this dream a reality. We can all do our part to make sure families don’t have to stay in abusive homes. There are many ways to help us guide this project to completion.
Join us by donating to this project. In addition, join us in our Everyone Gets a Shovel Campaign and submit a photo of yourself holding a shovel, a symbol for our community Building Hope for survivors of abuse. Make sure to leave a little note about why you have chosen to support HCWC and survivors of abuse.
Funds raised go directly to transitional housing and programs for victims of abuse.
