We help provide an opportunity for disadvantaged parish families to send their children to Catholic school, who would have otherwise never had the opportunity, by providing tuition support.

Our Kids at Heart was founded in July 2017 by Father Mark Hamlet, Pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Northeast Austin. At Our Kids at Heart, we support the Parish Partner School Program and aim to expand this program to other diocesan parishes.

Our Kids at Heart is a Texas non-profit corporation that is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
