Our Austin Pledge

A call for community-building, neighborliness, and love.

We pledge to uplift our neighbors in need by partnering with organizations who provide affordable and supportive housing solutions.

Walter Moreau

Since opening its doors in 1990, Foundation Communities has helped over 6,000 families and individuals find a home and a better quality of life within its 23 affordable housing communities. Over the past 25 years, Executive Director and Founder, Walter Moreau has secured subsidy financing of more than $200 million to create more than 3,500 units of service-enriched, nonprofit-owned affordable housing.

Co-founders, Realty Austin

Jonathan and Yvette Boatwright co-founded Realty Austin in 2004. Described as the brains and heart of Realty Austin, the dynamic duo offer an inspiring activation to get involved in solving Austin’s affordability crisis.

Explore their WHY behind launching this campaign and WHY they give back to the communities of greater Austin.


Giving back is the cornerstone of our culture at Realty Austin. This stems directly from our mission to support those who need safe, affordable housing in Austin. We work as a team to fundraise and volunteer for organizations that have a lasting impact on multiple generations of Austinites.

Since 2010, Realty Austin’s generous agents have volunteered over 11,000 hours, donated $1,000,000 of their commission from each transaction and raised over $100,000 from industry partners to support our strategic partnerships with Austin Habitat for Humanity, Foundation Communities, Community First! Village and SAFE.

Get Involved

Foundation Communities is a local, homegrown nonprofit organization providing affordable, attractive homes and free on-site support services for thousands of families with kids, as well as veterans, seniors, and individuals with disabilities since 1990.

Austin Habitat for Humanity is dedicated to ending the cycle of poverty housing and the deeply held belief that everyone deserves a decent, affordable place to live. The organization brings people together to build strong, stable and self-reliant communities.

The SAFE Alliance is a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, both long-standing and respected human service agencies in Austin serving the survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence.

Community First! Village is a development of Mobile Loaves & Fishes. The 51-acre master planned community in East Austin provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness.


Since opening its doors in 1990, Foundation Communities has helped over 6,000 families and individuals find a home and a better quality of life!
