Our Mission – New Rooms for Child Abuse Victims
Welcome to Room Redux, where healing and transformation go hand in hand. We are compassionately dedicated to encouraging healing and improving the lives of children who have faced abuse, through Room Transformation. Often, abuse occurs in a child’s own room. This can link the room to feelings of fear and aversion, causing the child to avoid it entirely. We provide new rooms for child abuse victims where they can feel comfortable and safe!
Since the beginning, one main goal of Room Redux has been to have the ability to transform the rooms and lives of children everywhere who have been victimized. With Chapters opening up across America, we get closer to reaching the goal of new rooms for child abuse victims everywhere.
New Braunfels Public Library Foundation
The New Braunfels Public Library Foundation was founded on November 11, 1996 as a result of looking for ways to help fund the growing needs of our library. During the initial discussion of plans to finance and build a larger library in New Braunfels (what is now the main library located at 700 East Common St), the Library Board met with an HEB executive to explore his company’s criteria for making grants and gifts. At that meeting, the Library Board was urged to establish a foundation to solicit money on behalf of the library. The Library Board was told that corporations do not, as a matter of general practice, make grants directly into municipal treasuries. It was then necessary to establish a state-chartered, tax-exempt foundation to generate and receive corporate grants on behalf of the library. This, combined with the need to handle bequests and trusts that would benefit the library without being mingled with other city funds, led to the Foundation’s creation.
When Family Promise began, it was a local response to a problem in Union County, New Jersey. Thirty years later, we are a national movement involving more than 200,000 volunteers which served more than 177,000 people in 2020. But the core of what we do is still local—partnerships within a city or county changing lives. Family Promise makes that possible by developing and supporting Affiliates that address family homelessness right in their own community.
Over the past three decades, Family Promise has continued to expand our scope and our reach. Today, we comprise more than 200 Affiliates across 43 states and are the leading national nonprofit addressing the issue of family homelessness.
ReGroup Foundation was founded in May 2015 when Army Ranger veteran Antonio Ruiz and his partner Stephanie Solton; the mother of an Air Force A10 crew chief, decided it was time to do something about the alarming statistics surrounding our veterans.
Specifically, they aimed to stop the suicide rates and homelessness so they went to work researching the problems and interviewing homeless veterans. What they discovered was that there are many smaller issues that lead to the bigger problems.
They also discovered there are many great veteran non profits doing amazing things; however, there are clear gaps.
One of the biggest gaps is providing the transitioning veterans a place to live while they take the time to explore their options, develop, and deploy a sound transition plan. A place where they are surrounded by other transitioning veterans.
