African American Youth Harvest Foundation

The African American Youth Harvest Foundation (AAYHF) was founded to provide resources to

underserved, at-risk youth and their families in Austin and outlying areas. AAYHF saw there was a gap

that needed to be filled and worked tirelessly with community partners and parents who were

truly concerned about the barriers that not only affect the minority populations of Austin but children

of all races, religions and socioeconomic backgrounds. Their vision is to continue to grow in order

to transition youth and their families who are in crisis into an end goal of self-sufficiency.
