Burke Center For Youth

is a nonprofit organization formed in 1973 to care for Texas children who are removed from their home environments due to abuse, neglect, or problems with the law. We are providing help and hope to children in crisis through our services. These are the children that belong to no one, and yet, they belong to us all. Help us to help these children find hope, healing and a place in a family.

The Friends of the Pound House Foundation (FPHF) is a 501(c)3 organization.

Your donation allows the FPHF to continue restoration and maintenance of the Dr. Pound Historical Farmstead.  More importantly, however, we will be able to continue developing and offering quality educational programs to our local school children and to our community.  We are also closer to  obtaining a much needed pavilion that will expand the programs and services we are able to offer.

Please consider making a donation to our museum today.

In the Summer of 2007 a group of Dripping Springs women representing various local civic groups and businesses joined together to discuss the possibility of organizing a women's club.

They saw the growth of Dripping Springs and the surrounding area and envisioned a club for the women of the community to come together and increase their local knowledge and become more involved in the community.

From that meeting The Dripping Springs Women's Club was formed.

Our Purpose is to facilitate interaction, information and community involvement through programs and events of interest and enjoyment.

In 2004, a small group of community volunteers got together with the idea of helping the elderly of Dripping Springs, with a focus of keeping them living independently at home. The Friends Foundation came to life in March 2004. Several years later, with the help of our members, supporters, volunteers and the community, we now have many outstanding programs which take care of our valuable senior citizens. Our Daily Bread is The Friends Foundation's flagship program along with financial assistance (income qualifying), Philips Lifeline Med-Alert and smoke alarm installation.

 

The goal of the Friends of the Dripping Springs Community Library is to promote the use of the Library, to foster an appreciation of its cultural and educational value to the community, and encourage and support improvement of the Library’s resources and services.

 

As we look to the future-and the ever-changing needs of our growing community-we invite you to join the Friend’s efforts to keep the Library vital and relevant. Your membership donation directly benefits and your volunteer time supports both the Library and our community. Join us, as we champion the community’s valuable asset, the Library!
