Help a Youth in Crisis


LifeWorks Youth & Family Alliance and the 10,000 youth and families we serve each year depend on generous participation and support from community members in order to carry out our mission.

Your donation of time, in-kind resources, and financial contributions make a significant impact on the lives of those who are seeking a path to self-sufficiency through the strengths-based programs and services that we offer.

Every dollar you invest in LifeWorks Youth & Family Alliance stays in the Austin community, and $.80 of each dollar goes directly to supporting one of our life-changing programs. Below are a few examples of how your contribution can impact a youth or family in need.
