We continue to provide COVID19 relief assistance. As of 11/1/2020, the Serving Center has spent $2,068,000 for rent and utilities for families impacted by COVID19.

The hours of distribution are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 am to 1 pm, and Saturday from 10 am to 12 pm.
Requests for financial assistance will continue to be made through the portal on the website where clients can submit their requests with a copy of their bills. This is followed up with a phone call to the client for the intake process. Clients are picking up their food vouchers and checks in the lobby during the food distribution hours. There is a cubicle in the lobby with plexiglass partitions and only two clients are admitted at the same time. A door attendant monitors the clients entering the lobby.

What people say about us
STUDENTS & GROUP VOlUNTEERS
“I belong to the Highly Effective Teen program and I always enjoy volunteering at the Serving Center and The Volunteer Center. Our group has volunteered at many events, like Family Volunteer Day – we also help to sort in the food pantry and planted in the community gardens. We have to achieve at least 20 – 40+ hours a year for NHS and school and they have made it fun to give back!”
“They do so much for the local community. I encourage anyone to volunteer and see how great the need is and how grateful those served are to have this organization here in Round Rock. I started with them as a client and received services when I was in need and then wanted to give back. People don’t realize there are people of all ages that are homeless and trying to get back on track. Thank you for your help!”
Patrick – Client & Volunteer
” We love to volunteer together at the Serving Center – keeping the resale shop organized, sorting merchandise for the store and helping in the food pantry and in client services. We have enjoyed and helped with many things over the past 10 years and have been a faithful partner to the Serving Center. We give back because it keeps us young and helps so many, when we were in a time of need – they were here for us! This is a meaningful way to spend our retirement years.”
