The Friends Foundation


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. We hope the website provides you with a wealth of resources and information to serve your needs. Should you be interested in our organization please feel free to contact us online.

The Friends Foundation is proud that all money raised is used to benefit the elderly in our community. We have no salaries and very little overhead. Many expenses are donated or provided at a reduced rate. Those expenses which are not donated are limited to expenses which directly benefit our fund-raising – such as the cost of food and advertising for the annual barbecue fund-raiser and the cost of meals associated with Our Daily Bread program.

Sponsorships and donations help to provide meals for Our Daily Bread – a hot meal delivery program for the homebound, medic alert devices for summoning help in an emergency, financial assistance in times of dire need, funding for special events at Hill Country Care for their residents, and numerous other programs beneficial to the elderly.
