HC4A’s mission is to Bridge Income Disparity Through Education in the spirit of “Serve where you Live”. Founded in 2010, HC4A, helps all economically disadvantaged students by donating school supplies and providing vocational scholarships.
HC4A is 100% run by volunteers and 100% of proceeds from your donations are used to provide scholarships and school supplies. We serve our local community, and all monies collected are distributed locally.
HC4A is operating nationally with chapters in Texas and California.
HC4A is proud to provide ten scholarships, $1,000 each for last year students served by Foundation Communities. "Thank you so much for your support and advocacy of our program and of our students. This money will make a huge difference in our students’ ability to graduate debt-free and move into a higher-paying career." Brianna McDonough, College Hub Manager. Foundation

School Supplies – Based on data from Texas Homeless Education Office, we identify the schools with homeless children needing most help. We then provide them the school supplies that they distribute to the students. We have provided school supplies to Austin, Manor, Del Valle ISDs and many other smaller organizations that are connected directly to homeless students.
Vocational Training Scholarships – We provide broad guidelines to the institutions and entrust them to select students. The key points in the Guidelines are: The student must be living below federally defined guidelines. The main organizations receiving the scholarships are community colleges, organizations that help take head of household and help them until they find a job, schools with graduating high school students and some other organizations who work with students experiencing economic hardship.
