AUSTIN, TX—Realty Austin surprised Central Texas Table of Grace with a $5,000 gift for the foster home on Giving Tuesday. Established in 2014, Table of Grace provides an emergency shelter for children and youths in the foster care system. The life-changing services provided within the home create a loving, homelike environment while teaching healthy habits and life skills.
Yvette Boatwright, Realty Austin Co-owner said, “Realty Austin is proud to support Central Texas Table of Grace foster home. The Founder, Stacy Johnson, genuinely connects with the children to create real change in their lives after knowing first-hand being a foster child herself. Our team gives back generously year-round in order to support impactful community initiatives that provide safe and affordable housing, and we’re excited to support more housing projects with this organization in 2021.”
Johnson’s new vision, Grace 365, is a supervised independent living program for youths 18-22 who have aged out of the foster care system. Grace 365 connects these youths with safe affordable housing, existing services, mentoring, and guidance. The long term goal of the program is to provide a solid foundation for success within a Tiny Home Village and community center, inspired by Alan Graham and Community First! Village.
