Songs of Hope

Chair Rebecca Hardeman

Songs of Hope is Caritas of Austin’s annual fall fundraising event. This concert celebration features live music by SkyRocket!, dinner, 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 inaugural event in 2022 raised $600,000 to provide Austinites with a safe, stable and affordable place to call home! We look forward to raising even more in fall 2023 to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring in our community.
