The adopted charity of all Austin-area COVER 2 and COVER 3’s is Partnerships For Children. Partnerships for Children is a private, non-profit organization that’s centered around helping the abused and neglected children of the Central Texas area. PFC’s mission is to aide caseworkers by expanding their four programs: The Rainbow Room, Holiday Wishes, YES Mentoring, and The Heart Gallery.
The Rainbow Room: A 24/7 resource center where caseworkers can pick up necessary supplies for children going through exceedingly rough times. There are toiletries, clothing, toys, school supplies, beds, car seats, etc. that can be taken at any time to help these children.
Holiday Wishes: Not every child is fortunate enough to know the joys of the holidays. This program grants a neglected child three ‘wishes’ (gifts).
YES Mentoring: Unfortunately, not every child gets adopted. This program gives young adults who were in the foster program until they were of legal age an opportunity to gain insights and important tools needed for the real world. Some of these tools include financial literacy, cooking on a budget, filing tax returns, etc.
The Heart Gallery: An initiative to bring awareness to all of the children in Central Texas area in search of a home. This amazing program takes photographs of the children and displays them around the Central Texas region. The Heart Gallery has helped the Central Texas adoption rate surpass 60%.
We at Cover 2 and Cover 3 strive to give what we can to this amazing organization. We host multiple events, including our PFC Pickle Program, Annual Golf Classic every fall, the Holiday Toy Drive, and the annual Partnerships for Children Gala that all benefit PFC.
