Mission: Possible! Austin engages long-term relationships with families to break the cycle of poverty one life at a time. We believe that by forming strategic partnerships and mobilizing the church, we can help families move from crises to thriving. Listed below are some current programs and partnerships that help us accomplish our mission.
“Hesed” is a Hebrew word that is defined as exceeding love and kindness or grace. Our Hesed homes are “short-term intervention” homes used for families and women in crisis. These homes are occupied full-time by Christ followers living out this radical (Hesed) grace. The Christ followers will act as overseers and caretakers for the families staying in the homes.
Lifeline Pregnancy Resource Center
Lifeline Pregnancy Resource Center offers free pregnancy tests, free limited ultrasounds and confidential option counseling. Beyond that, we offer excellent parenting and life skills classes and a boutique with material goods for you and your baby. Our materials are also approved by CPS. We are here to help you and never judge your choices or circumstances. We do not refer for or perform abortions. Call/text us at 512-494-0952 or 512-563-0071 to schedule an appointment.
Tree of Lights Christmas Store
Shining the light of Christ through Christmas! Tree of Lights Christmas Store provides families in our community the opportunity to shop for new toys at 80% off retail price (parents pay 20%). We opened the store in 2017, and we were able to serve 35 families and over 100 children! Our goal for 2018 is to double the numbers of families served! We partner with SPIRIT 105.9 Radio and a variety of churches and organizations to make this possible.
Eastside Community Church
A family of believers living as Christ’s body for the good of our community and the glory of God. Eastside Community Church is a plant from Wells Branch Community Church, and serves as a part of Mission: Possible! Austin’s “Family of Ministries”. Mission: Possible! Austin is supported by a variety of churches, but Eastside Community Church serves as a local church body committed to serving the community.
