Monthly Wish List

Each month we have a special ask for our community. The items we select may seem small but can make a big difference in the life of a child. It’s something most of us take for granted, but you should see the smile on a child’s face. We want to make it easy and fun for you to help us with this project.

Make a Donation

Connections depends on state and federal grants as well as foundational support to operate its programs and services across 17 counties. However, the need is too great to rely on grants alone; therefore, Connections also relies on community support in the form of both monetary and in-kind donations.

General Wish List

Regardless of the time of year, we accept general items critical to everyday operations in our facilities. With approximately 54 residents in our care on any given day, we go through basic items quickly and appreciate regular donations of the items listed below. Items can be dropped off at our New Braunfels facility at 1414 West San Antonio St. or our Portland facility at 209 Lang Rd.
