We are proud of Dove Springs!

The River City Youth Foundation seeks to celebrate of the value and accomplishments of children in South Austin. In the midst of poverty and crime, the children of the neighborhood know they can find a safe place to work on homework, read and eat meals at the foundation.

See our community pride in action through our nationally-recognized documentary entitled “Dove Spring Teens: Truth vs. Rumors.”
