The vision of DJ Bling Foundation is a society where every child has the ability to create a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities through academic success, positive role models, and community service.
Our mission is to equip every student with the supplies, resources, and support needed to achieve and maintain academic success.
Our core program is providing free school supplies to students of low-income families. Since 2013 we have helped over 10,000 students in the Central Texas area. Many of our supplies are given away at the annual DJ Bling's Back 2 School Festival.
In 2018 we partnered with Austin Transportation Department and Austin Police Department to teach Road Safety Courses and provide free bikes, helmets, and locks to kids of low-income families. In two years we have provided 250 kids with free bikes.
Access to resources and information is one of the many hardships for low-income communities. We provide access to information and other family resources such as health screenings, dental, college information, clothes, shoes, and many other needed family resources.
As more and more schools increase online learning and technology based learning many low-income families do not have access to the required technology. We strive to make sure each family has at least one laptop or tablet in order for their students to access online learning tools and classroom assignments.
The F.A.M.E program offers state certified drug and alcohol classes at affordable rates for low-income communities in Bastrop and Travis Counties. The program also offers anger management and counseling by our professional certified counselors. The goal of F.A.M.E is to create better communities by creating better families and root out the problems with drugs and alcohol in our communities.
Sports teach team work, togetherness, discipline, and are a good way to stay physically fit. Unfortunately many kids can not afford to participate in youth team sports due to financial hardships. We will provide a free Under Armour Under the Lights Flag football team and 3 on 3 basketball team in the San Antonio league. We are also working with Under Armour to establish an Austin league.
