“It took me a long time to learn that vulnerability fosters connection. If you can be open with someone, they’ll open to you. If you’re not closed off, other people won’t be closed off.”
– Stacy Johnson
Established in 2014, the organization was formed by Stacy Johnson, a former foster child, who recognized the need for temporary shelter for displaced children. Headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, the mission is accomplished by addressing the critical need of emergency housing and care for displaced children and youth through local initiatives and targeted outreach programming, coupled with best practices in management and accountability. They are dedicated to helping each child reach his or her individual potential by encouraging wholesome habits such as perseverance, focusing on goals, and personal responsibility. We teach that character matters. These are skills the youth will carry into adulthood.
CTTG was conceived and organized to address the social, intellectual, and recreational needs of Texas’ displaced youth, to counteract failure, and to assist in the successful transition to life in a positive environment. We demonstrate a passionate commitment to excellence. We address the social, intellectual, and recreational needs of Texas’ displaced youth. In 2021, our mission to help foster youth expanded to include youth that age out of foster care. Our Grace365 Supervised Independent Living program launched and is one of only three in the Austin area, and the only one in Round Rock.
