Hill Country Community Ministries is a nonprofit organization, a coalition of churches founded in 1983, to help families in crisis and those living in poverty in southwest Williamson and northwest Travis counties.
We are supported by area churches, businesses, civic organizations, schools, and concerned individuals, including the dedicated service of more than 200 volunteers.
HCCM operates a food pantry, clothes closet, and provides other assistance for approximately 400-500 families a month.

Austin Community College Food Drive
Counselors at Austin Community College Cypress Creek Campus organized a community resources event in April for students and used the event to kick-off a food drive to benefit HCCM. Twenty-one Williamson County agencies and nonprofits, including HCCM, set up tables at the event to share information about their organizations.
The food drive was conducted for a period of two weeks and brought in more than 400 pounds of food for the HCCM Food Pantry. We appreciate our partnership with Austin Community College and their ongoing support and outreach to the community.
“Hill Country Community Ministries Month”
Proclamation by Leander City Council
Leander City Council recently proclaimed March as “Hill Country Community Ministries Month.” The purpose of the proclamation, introduced by Mayor Pro Tem Michell Cantwell, is to recognize nonprofits for their contribution to the city and encourage residents to “support local charities with donations of their goods, money and time.”
In partnership with the effort, Greater Leander Chamber of Commerce, is serving as a drop-off site for food donations for HCCM to make it easy for folks working in and around the various city departments and other businesses and individuals to participate. However, large food drive donations should be delivered directly to HCCM. The collection of food will continue at the Chamber through the month of April.
As our food supplies are typically low during the spring each year, this outreach to the community comes at a very critical time. We need to schedule more food drives in the next couple of months to help meet the demand. View the flier for more information on how you can help families in need.
