Featured Story

Women of Hope –  SAFE | Children’s Shelter

The Women of Hope are a group of local Austin women who have joined forces to support SAFE | Children’s Shelter. Formed in 2011, these amazing women have donated their time and raised over $600,000 to support housing, education, and other basic needs of the SAFE children and families. The Women of Hope are on a mission to make the world a better place for abused and neglected children and we’ve got the story! Learn more about this philanthropic group of women and how they are making Austin a SAFE place. 


As new developments continue to grow around Austin, so has the need for affordable housing. In 2010, we made it our mission to support organizations that provide housing and services to low income families in need.

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.


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.

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.
