OUR CHILDREN NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not evil, to give you a future and a hope."
The students and families served by Side by Side Kids have been greatly impacted by COVID-19 with loss of wages and childcare, inability to pay for basic needs, food insecurity, and lack of health support, such as access to face masks or an understanding of how to protect their families. As a result, SBSK has pivoted to support the basic and most urgent needs of our community while also fulfilling our mission to inspire and equip kids in East Austin to be excellent students, make wise choices, and follow Christ.
Here are ways you can help!
