A fundraising campaign for Hays-Caldwell Women's Center

As the northern-most city in Hays County, Buda has an ever-growing population, and its residents are dedicated to maintaining a charming, thriving community. HCWC is lucky to have several staff members who work closely with community members at Buda events.

A Strong Partnership With the Library

We are honored to partner with the very active Buda Public Library, and have attended their Spring Fling and Summer Reading Program Kick Off for the past few years. Both events are free to the public and are very well attended by Buda families. 

A Supportive Business Community

Locally owned businesses in Buda have been very generous to HCWC. The Buda Drug Store and Soda Fountain participates in our profit-share event, Dining for Change, each October. A local art gallery, Assemblage, collected donations for local victims of abuse at a book reading by local authors.

“Mardi Bra”

The Buda United Methodist Church has hosted an event “Mardi Bra” for the past three years, during which the congregation donates new undergarments for our clients. The “Mardi Bra” event is on Mardi Gras and is such themed with a King Cake, beads, and games. New undergarments are an ongoing need and we are grateful to receive this donation each year.

Buda United Methodist also graciously donated holiday stockings to our clients at Roxanne’s House.
