Volunteer With Partnerships for Children

The value of community? Priceless. Partnerships for Children wouldn't work without the thousands of volunteer hours we receive each year.

Our Teens4Teens program gives teens a chance to participate in many of our programs and learn about the importance of giving back. Our Heart Gallery Captains help the over 1,000 children in Central Texas who are available for adoption find their forever home. Our YES and KING Mentoring programs have a variety of opportunities to impact the lives of youth impacted by the child welfare system.

Our donors are vitally important to us - you help sustain our mission and you reinforce the value of the work we do for our community's most vulnerable children.

All donations to Partnerships for Children are tax-deductible and directly fund our 4 core programs: the Rainbow Room, Holiday Wishes, The Heart Gallery of Central Texas and YES

There are several simple ways to make your contribution go even further.


Give the gift of awareness.

Every year during National Adoption Month, Partnerships for Children prints a new edition of its Heart Gallery Book. Each page of the book features a photo (captured by one of our professional volunteer photographers), and a brief profile of a Central Texas child available for adoption. The books are distributed throughout Central Texas; in doctor offices, churches, local businesses, etc. in order to build awareness for the incredible children in our community waiting for their forever family. For $25 you can sponsor one of these books, or gift it in someone's honor.


Many companies match employee donations. Some also have volunteer grant programs where they will recognize
your volunteer support by providing PFC with a financial donation. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify.

We’re in constant need of new items for the children we serve. Our monthly campaign, the Rainbow Room Round-Up, is designed to help us “round up” the items we need to restock. Sign up to receive monthly emails about our needs on our Round-Up Wish List. To schedule a time to drop off donations, contact Marcus at or 512-834-4756.


A Rainbow Room drive gathers much needed new items for our Rainbow Room. Encourage friends, family, coworkers, or classmates to participate as a team. You can ask for donations around a certain theme (think: “Goods for Goodnight” and collect items needed for bedtime) or even start a collection challenge between different departments in your office. Any drive is a great way to amplify your positive impact in a child’s life. For questions or to schedule a drop-off time, email Marcus.
