This year Congregation Kol Halev will be adopting 2 families for the holidays through the Foundation Communities organization (
Foundation Communities is a local Austin Non-profit that has been around for more than 25 years. They provide affordable housing with more than 23 communities around the Austin area. They also realize that housing isn’t the only piece to stability, so they also provide additional services at the community sites that include education, wellness, etc. Taken from their website…
Foundation Communities is a local, homegrown nonprofit. We provide affordable, attractive homes and free on-site support services for thousands of families with kids, as well as veterans, seniors, and individuals with disabilities. We offer an innovative, proven model that empowers our residents and neighbors to achieve educational success, financial stability, and healthier lifestyles. We own and operate 23 communities all over Austin and in North Texas.

This year, CKH has adopted two families.
Selena is a 24 year old mother of 2 sons, 6 and 4.
Ayad is the head of a household of 3 adults (mother, father and 18 year son) and two daughters, ages 11 and 16.
