It's important to look after all of the niches of society, yet it's an unfortunate fact that many vulnerable groups don't have access to resources to help them.
This July our charitable giving spotlight was shone on Project Transitions; the group's goal to provide medically-supportive, affordable housing and recuperative care for people living with HIV and AIDS in the area is made possible thanks to their amazing team who work tirelessly to help Austinites all over, and we're thrilled to help them help so many others. Our team gifted the group ten complete height adjustable desks to help them work in healthy and comfortable postures as they do all of their important work behind the scenes.
Clients at Doug's House are given around-the-clock care from social workers, caregivers, and a Registered Nurse. They group operates two transitional apartment complexes for people living with HIV and AIDS and their families, as well as Top Drawer Thrift, two of Austin's most loved thrift stores. Money raised at the store goes directly to helping these vulnerable populations get better in kind and compassionate settings.
The work that Project Transitions does for so many men and women in Central Texas eases the medical, financial, and emotional burden for countless people in our community, and we're proud to say we're partners in helping their team stay healthy while they work.
