"Foster families are diverse, however the one thing they have in common is a calling to open their hearts and homes to children."

Volunteer at The Garage Sale:
The Annual Garage Sale provides an opportunity for The Settlement Home for Children to not only help the children we serve, but also the Central Texas non-profit community. Through our Giving for Living program on Sunday, The Settlement Home provides vouchers to more than 50 Central Texas non-profits. These non-profits distribute the $25 vouchers to their clients who are in need of essential items, such as clothing, baby clothes and toys, kitchen items and more. The clients use these vouchers to pay for items at the Garage Sale.
For two years, we have adopted Lanier High School as part of our Giving for Living program. We provided each Lanier High School student with a shopping certificate to spend on Sunday at the Garage Sale.
Sponsors are needed to support this program. If you are interested in sponsoring Giving for Living certificates, email [email protected].
