The Austin Children’s Shelter protects and heals children, young adults and families in need. We believe that every child and young adult in our community deserves to feel safe and to receive nurturing care in order to grow into happy, responsible and fulfilled adults.
ACS provides a safe home and supportive services for children, youth and young adults from birth to 21 who have experienced significant loss, trauma, abuse and/or neglect in their lives. Most children at the Austin Children’s Shelter have been removed from their homes by Child Protective Services because of severe abuse or neglect. The goal of this film is to educate audiences about how we can help youth who have experienced abuse and neglect overcome its effects, and to inspire others to be a part of the solution by getting involved with or supporting Austin Children’s Shelter.
