We are grateful to Kent for his leadership, and we look forward to introducing you to Family Eldercare’s next CEO this fall.
Jaime is a Rapid Rehousing client at Family Eldercare. He is an immigrant who has been a permanent resident since his early thirties and has spent decades paying Social Security taxes out of his wages. Without a doubt, Jaime qualifies for Social Security benefits. However, he has one barrier preventing him from accessing those benefits — a permanent residency card needs to be presented at the time of application and Jaime’s permanent residency card was recently discarded by his old roommates.
Volunteers are especially important to all of us at Family Eldercare, in fact, for some of our programs it’s essential. To wrap up Volunteer Week, we have highlighted 4 of our Lifetime Connections Without Walls volunteers to share some of their favorite parts of volunteering with us.
Social Work Month in March is a time to celebrate social workers and their dedication to service. We asked Family Eldercare social workers to share their stories of why they chose to pursue the profession and received a diverse array of responses.
During Black History Month, we are reflecting on Austin’s history and many of the policies that have led to two concerning and uncomfortable truths our community is facing: the population of people experiencing homelessness in Austin is disproportionately Black and increasingly made up of older adults.
A year ago, Winter Storm Uri left many Central Texans without power and water. It left behind $195 billion dollars in damage, an economic impact some Texans are still feeling.
You—our advocates, volunteers, donors, and friends—have made 2021 another year to remember.
Family Eldercare has been working hard to make sure that the people we serve are safe and connected no matter what.

We’re thrilled to announce our participation in the Travis County Supportive Housing Collaborative to develop a pipeline of new-build supportive housing to address the needs of housing-fragile older adults, people experiencing homelessness, and adults with disabilities.
This investment would help older adults, people with disabilities, and care workers across the country live and age with dignity in their own homes and communities.

Family Eldercare believes everyone who needs a COVID-19 vaccine should get one. We are focused on ensuring high-risk older adults and adults with disabilities receive the information, resources, and support they need to get vaccinated.
We’re calling on Governor Abbott to release the billions in unspent CARES Act funding to support the rental assistance needs of Texas renters and landlords.
On this Veterans Day, don’t thank a Veteran for their service. Instead ask them, “You good?”
We have made the difficult decision to close our In-home Care services program, effective October 31, 2020, after 25 years of providing older adults and adults with disabilities personalized care at home.
Family Eldercare emphatically opposes this change, and any other efforts by legislators to legalize discrimination against any group. We will continue to serve, advocate, and fight for the LGBTQ+ and disability communities.
Our agency is committed to the issues of older adults and adults with disabilities, and we must vocally acknowledge that racial and systemic injustice are leading issues for the people we serve.
