Songs of Hope

Thursday, April 3, 2025

6 PM to 10 PM

H-E-B Terrace at the Long Center

Songs of Hope is Caritas of Austin’s annual fundraising event. Mark your calendars for the 2025 Songs of Hope on April 3rd! Gather your friends, family, or coworkers to enjoy live music, dinner, dancing, a live and silent auction, a Fund The Mission opportunity, and more.

100% of funds raised stay local and are used to prevent and end homelessness for people in Greater Austin. 

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, donors and attendees, the 2024 event raised over $630,000 to provide Austinites with a safe, stable and affordable place to call home! We look forward to raising even more this spring to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring in our community.

Fund the Mission

Help us end homelessness for hundreds of Austinites through a Fund the Mission gift! A Fund the Mission gift is 100% tax-deductible and goes directly toward supporting Caritas of Austin. We invite you to make a pre-committed gift through Fund The Mission and help change the lives of our clients now! For more information on Fund the Mission gifts and the impact of your gift, contact Kyler Wesp at

Party for A Cause

Come together with your friends and family to celebrate while giving back! Host a Party for A Cause benefitting Caritas of Austin and encourage guests to support our work during an evening, tailored to fit your preferences. Retirement or birthday parties, girls nights in, or any other gathering with the people you love can provide the people we serve with a safe place to call home.
