OUR MISSION

We help families send their children to Catholic school, who would have otherwise never had the opportunity. Our program is so important because Catholic students obtain a high-quality education while transforming their families—they attend Mass together, pray together, and heal and grow through Catholic family values. This transformation renews the parish community through stronger families, better parenting, and secure marriages.

Our Kids at Heart was founded in July 2017 by Father Mark Hamlet, Pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Northeast Austin.  We support the Parish Partner School Program and raise funds for the Sacred Heart Tuition Fund. 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.

STRENGTHENING FAMILIES

Families of Catholic students:
  • attend Mass together
  • pray together
  • heal and grow through Catholic family values

WAYS TO HELP

Our Kids at Heart is dedicated to helping the families of the Diocese of Austin. In order to have a meaningful financial impact, we must rely on the kindness of donors. Without donations, our ability to assist families in Austin who are looking to provide their children with quality educational opportunities is limited. If you would like to help Central Texas families give their children an excellent Catholic education, please learn about the many ways you can help.
