Community Comes Together for Children’s Coat Drive

During cold winter months, our amazing partners help keep our mission warm. This past winter, Junior League of Austin, took things a step further by working with our Adult Services Coordinator, Astrid Duenas and Zenaida Martinez, Blue Cross Blue Shield partner to donate winter coats to our East Austin College Prep students. Through a community effort, SWK was able to provide over 550 coats to families in need.

Southwest Key Employees Come Together to Spread Holiday Joy

While the winter holidays are best known to be a time of good tidings and joy, they can be stressful for families who may be struggling or are living paycheck to paycheck. Southwest Key Programs has helped to connect families with their own Christmas Angel who could help to provide gifts and ease the stress from the extra costs that come with the holidays.

Holidays at Casa Blanca

During the holidays, Southwest Key Programs works to ensure all of the youth in our care enjoy special celebrations, activities and traditional holiday meals. Staff at our shelters take extra care to celebrate various cultural traditions with the children during this time of year, such as La Posada, Noche Buena and Dia del Los Reyes.
