This past Christmas, CapCityKids was privileged to host a holiday party and screening of the great new Christmas movie, "Angels Sing"

Many of you joined our board and writer/actor Turk Pipkin for a wonderful evening at the Violet Crown Cinema that helped provide a joyful Christmas for homeless kids in Austin.

Filmed in Austin, "Angels Sing" stars Harry Connick, Jr., Connie Britton, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.

A joyful story about finding the courage to believe in Christmas and family, The Washington Post calls the film an, "An Ode to Christmas Cheer!"

CapCityKids' Kate Amerson: Social Worker of the Year

Kate Amerson, a social worker who supervises a team of graduate school interns within the Austin Independent School District, was named the Texas Social Work Field Instructor of the Year by a consortium of 54 university social work programs for her work on behalf of homeless and at-risk students.

Amerson oversees an innovative collaboration between the Austin Independent School District, the University of Texas School of Social Work and CapCityKids, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless students receive a quality education.

The Texas Field Educators’ Consortium awarded Amerson with the Social Work Field Instructor of the Year award in September at the National Association of Social Workers Texas Annual Conference in Houston. Since 1997, the Texas Field Educators’ Consortium has given the statewide award to field instructors to “recognize excellence in the true stars of social work field education."
