Hesed Homes on Austin’s Eastside
“Hesed” is a Hebrew word that is defined as exceeding love and kindness or grace.
In the past, an extend family or neighbor would step in to help families in crisis; caring for their children and families for short periods of time.
Today, however, many families are socially isolated, and their extended family is nonexistent, or unable to help. Sadly, this leaves thousands of children at risk.
At Hesed Homes, our short term intervention often allows crisis situations to cool down and provides room to work on real solutions.
