Our ProjectsHow You Build Compassion


Five months after wildfires displaced 1,600+ families, destroyed 35,000+ acres of land, and killed 2 people in Bastrop County, news coverage had slowed, public awareness had fallen, and most people had forgotten the tragedy of that day. Building Compassion partnered with the Ministerial Alliance of Bastrop County to help a community build hope from the ashes.

Sixty-five university student volunteers worked with our staff and contractors to complete 27 projects for recipients from a priority list of individuals who had lost their homes in the fires and were identified as elderly, disabled or uninsured.
