2020 Garage & Estate Sale

Each year, more than 10,000 shoppers flock to The Settlement Home for Children’s Annual Garage & Estate Sale at the Palmer Events Center (900 Barton Springs Road) to get their hands on unique items and bargain-priced merchandise. Shoppers browse in our 21 different “departments,” such as clothing, shoes, jewelry, toys, furniture, books, linen, art, holiday items and so much more. All proceeds go to The Settlement Home for Children. Due to health protocols and gathering restrictions, The 45th Annual Garage & Estate Sale, taking place November 6–8, 2020 at the Palmer Events Center, has been canceled. 

Shining Star: A Night to Inspire

Shining Star: A Night to Inspire is an evening to honor our Community Youth Council (CYC), which consists of area high school students who are committed to giving back to the community as volunteers with The Settlement Home.

The Settlement Home for Children Community Youth Council (CYC) is a group of Austin-area juniors who volunteer their time to support the programs and services we offer. This inspiring group of young philanthropists provide much needed hands-on support to the daily operations of The Settlement Home, an Austin nonprofit that serves children in foster care through residential programs. Members of the CYC have a variety of extracurricular interests, but come together with the common goal of service to others.
