Caritas of Austin’s 58th Birthday
Monsignor Richard McCabe founded Caritas of Austin in 1964 with the belief that all people deserve to have their basic needs met. Even in its earliest days, this organization focused on ensuring people had a stable place to call home. Since its inception, Caritas of Austin has operated independent of any religious affiliation but has been generously supported by all faith groups over the past five decades. While our organization and services have grown tremendously, our core work to restore dignity, respect, and stability for people remains unchanged. Our inspirational founder passed away in 2009, but his vision to relentlessly pursue better ways to support our most vulnerable community members lives on today.
