Florence Ponziano moved into her East Austin neighborhood of Montopolis several years ago. In response to the daily challenges she and her neighbors face both inside and outside their homes, she founded Florence’s Comfort House.
This house, filled with love, acceptance, and encouragement, enables Florence to reach out to the kids in her community, helping them to make the best of their lives both during their youth and beyond.
At Comfort House, we focus on supplying kids’ essential needs—including food, clothing, school supplies, and a safe place to study and play.
The Comfort House gives kids meals and snacks that fight an empty stomach and promote good health. We also make sure they have well-fitting clothes and shoes so the children can begin each day feeling comfortable and confident. Finally, we provide backpacks full of necessary supplies so that the kids enter the classroom prepared to learn and succeed.
The kids also learn to give back to their community in similar ways to how they are being helped. These activities include:
● Delivering items from the food pantry to those in need
● Assembling and delivering food baskets to seniors
● Cleaning up their neighborhoods
● Beautifying their environment through art projects
Florence’s Comfort House depends on the generosity of those who share their values and goals. At Sky Realty we recognize the importance of what Florence provides for her community and take pride in supporting her anyway we can. You can help too!
Donations for Florence Comfort House are accepted at Sky Realty offices and through their website.
