The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and broader economic environment have had a huge impact on education, amplifying inequities, and threatening to widen the achievement gap.

As students prepare to return to school, families, and communities are struggling to balance education and safety, with low-income families being hit the hardest.

Community Pods brings K-5 public schools, nonprofit organizations, and additional resources together to support the mental health and well-being of family units, and ensure all students have access to a safe and healthy place to learn in Central Texas. Because no parent should have to choose between going to work and ensuring the safety and education of their child.

By providing community learning spaces, Community Pods connects families with the resources they need, providing access to capital, social services, physical space, educational support, and volunteers, all dedicated to supporting the education and well-being of AISD families and students.

Community Pods relies on donations from the Austin community to provide free meals, staff, and the learning infrastructure that our children need in these times.
