The Northwest Austin Circle of Friends is a community-volunteer support group of the Children's Medical Center Foundation. Funds raised by our chapter benefit the Texas Child Study Center Endowment at Dell Children’s Medical Center. The Northwest Austin Circle of Friends is proud to be celebrating our 20th year of raising funds and awareness for Dell Children’s Medical Center. This state-of-the-art facility offers children in a 46-county service area access to a full continuum of care from the area’s prime pediatric specialists - regardless of their family’s ability to pay. With the generous support from the community, our volunteer group has successfully raised over $772,000 to date.
Moving forward, Dell Children’s Medical Center will convert an existing wing of the hospital into an inpatient behavioral health unit. Currently in Central Texas, children with mental health issues have very few options for inpatient care. To meet this increasing need in our community, Dell Children’s will create a place where children and adolescents with emotional, developmental, and behavioral challenges can get the care they need in a safe environment specifically designed for kids.
