Amplify Austin 2019

Contribute to our scholarship fund and be the reason a student can attend Extend-A-Care’s Enchanted Summer Camp Experience. Last summer, EAC hosted over 1,000 youth at our various summer camps throughout the Greater Austin area, and over 63% of our youth received scholarship assistance to attend. Help a struggling single parent, a homeless child, or families in need of financial assistance have a high, quality option this upcoming summer! Donate to the EAC Amplify Austin Page (Feb. 28- March 1)!

Support Extend-A-Care's Mission!  Keep Quality Childcare Available to ALL Families in Our Community!

Extend-A-Care For Kids provides onsite, licensed after-school, summer, and preschool programming to 3,500 children on an annual basis.  Approximately 40% of our families enrolled in after-school care are low-income and cannot afford the cost of tuition.  To enable these working parents to support their families, Extend-A-Care discounts some or all of their monthly tuition fees.  To offer this vital support to our families while upholding a high level of quality, we must have true partnership with the community.  No contribution is too big or too small.  For more information on monetary contributions, or on donating in-kind goods (supplies, material, or equipment), please contact Jaime Garcia at 226-8254.

As the Executive Director at Extend-A-Care for Kids, I believe that the enriching, affordable, program we offer to 3,000+ children each year provides one of the facets of reducing the cycle of poverty in our community. We ensure parents can work or attend school on a fulltime basis without worrying about the safety, and extended learning for their children. We give our parents peace of mind and even the playing field for children who would not otherwise afford an afterschool or summer program commensurate with the experiences of their peers from families of affluence.
