Our Beginnings

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 this website provides you with a wealth of resources and information to serve your needs. Should you need additional information, 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. Board members and volunteers receive no salary or other compensation and we have very little overhead. Many expenses are funded by donations or provided at a reduced rate. Those expenses which are not donated are limited to those which directly benefit our fundraising. All proceeds from any monies raised or donated to our organization are used to benefit The Friends Foundation’s goals and purpose in accordance with its by-laws.
