We are very excited to announce that iACT’s Hands on Housing program is being featured as KUT’s “Get Involved” non-profit of the month!
Be sure to check out the streaming audio of their Hands on Housing story which can be found just above the article on KUT’s website. There is also a video on the bottom of the same page.
Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT) is dedicated to building healthy, respectful relationships between our diverse faith communities. Our mission is to “cultivate peace and respect through interfaith dialogue, service and celebration.” Over 75% of our time and budget goes into our service programs which allow our volunteers to channel their compassion through positive collaborative action.
Our largest service program is Hands on Housing, which has repaired 1,400 homes in East Austin since its creation in 1989. Our clients are typically senior citizens and disabled individuals living on between $8,000 -$12,000 per year.
Log-on to kut.org to learn how you can volunteer or donate to Hands on Housing – a program that repairs hearts as well as homes!
Many thanks to our Hands on Housing volunteers Chuck Vorspan and Amanda Quraishi and our wonderful homeowner / partner Doris Roland for being a part of this feature story. Thanks also to KUT and to I Live Here, I Give Here for this wonderful series on Austin non-profits.
