Earley and Hsung Help Provide Critical Care to Youth
More than half of Austin Children’s Shelter’s funding for programs and services are dependent on generous donations from the community. As part of the Austin community, Damon Earley and Jenna Hsung chose to donate to Austin Children’s Shelter (ACS) through Give Realty. The donation by Give Realty on behalf of Damon and Jenna to ACS will help to support many of those services.
New residents of The Woods in Austin, Damon Earley and Jenna Hsung selected Give Realty for the purchase of their new home because of the unique opportunity to give back to the community. “We feel like we are doing something really positive with this organization”, says Earley.
ACS provides a safe home and supportive services for children, youth and young adults from birth to age 22 who have experienced significant loss, trauma, abuse and/or neglect in their lives. The donation on behalf of Jenna and Damon will help to further the mission of ACS to protect and heal, children, young adults and families in need.
More specifically, the donation on behalf of Jenna and Damon will help to staff and train individuals to care for children, who have suffered trauma, through therapy, medical care, and educational assistance. In addition, it will help provide high-quality care and critical services to youth at ACS.
This donation will not only provide help for the immediate future of ACS but according to chief development officer, Carmine Salvucci, Give Realty’s community support offers, “a model for other businesses – both small and large – who want to find a way to give back”.
