HELP US BREAK THE CYCLE OF POVERTY
Mission Possible Austin: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty One Life at a Time
Poverty is a relentless, systemic, and generational crisis.
Up to 46% of children who live in serious poverty will remain impoverished well into adulthood. Most East Austin homes – up to 86% – are classified as low- to moderate-income.
Children here face massive hurdles in accessing education. Teens face negative influences in all areas of their lives. Families struggle to afford basic food and necessities.

We alone can’t fix society’s systemic problems that encourage poverty to thrive.
We can, however, enrich the lives of individual children and families throughout Austin’s most under-resourced communities. Mission Possible strives to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty one life at a time.
We enrich the lives of children, teens, and Austin’s most vulnerable people with Christ-centered relationships and resources.
Change Lives, Impact Communities, Transform Generations.
Why do we get out of bed every morning?
To speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. To defend the rights of the poor and needy [Proverbs 31:8-9]
For nearly 30 years, Mission Possible has served East Austin communities as a non-profit ministry.
What We Believe
We believe in living a Christ-like life. To us, that means respecting and uplifting our area’s most vulnerable people.
From our humble beginnings supplying child programs in the early 1990s, Mission Possible has blossomed into a vital community resource for countless families.
We believe in:
- Creating a Christ-centered culture to promote generational transformation
- Supplying important resources based on individual needs
- Doing what’s best for the community at any moment based on Biblical values
- Recognizing our responsibility to the community
- Staying attentive to our purpose of helping people succeed
- Conducting ourselves with utmost transparency
How Do We Help Families Move from Crisis to Thriving in Our Community?
Through God’s provision, we’re able to offer a vast range of resources to children, families, the elderly, the homeless, and recovering addicts stuck in systemic poverty.
Our family programs form strategic relationships to help families move out of crisis and thrive. Mission Possible understands that a family needs security and material support while hearing about the love of Jesus. That’s how we seek to transform generations.
Some of our family programs include:
Temporary crisis housing // Pregnancy Resource Center // Holiday assistance // Immediate food assistance
View Our Programs
Kids need routine, structure, and guidance. Sadly, children from East Austin’s most under-resourced communities don’t have access to adequate education and after-school programs. This has dire consequences on entire communities.
Mission Possible fills the gap.
Our individualized children and teen programs support learning while providing a safe space for kids to be kids:
Big Fish Club for elementary school children // Tutoring in low-income apartment communities // Restoration Art Center for hands-on activities // Camp Nikos for outdoor camping // FUZE youth program and Camp retreats for discipleship and leadership development.
Investing in One Individual Uplifts Entire Communities.
