Partners in Parenting: Amplify Austin Nonprofit Spotlight

RecognizeGood’s mission is to illuminate good in the greater Austin community, and through our partnership with I Live Here I Give Here and the community-wide day of giving known as Amplify Austin Day, we’re proud to showcase one way we’re doing that.

Since its launch in 2007, I Live Here I Give Here has helped raise over $100MM for Central Texas nonprofit organizations by helping promote over 700 nonprofit members and help tell their stories. Storytelling is something that many nonprofits struggle with, but thanks to the RecognizeGood partnership the I Live Here I Give Here staff was able to thoughtfully invite a group of nonprofits to tell their story through RecognizeGood. The videos in this series will be shown during Amplify Live, a 24-hour livestream that provides engaging content to attract donors to interact with the Amplify Austin site.

Thanks to our venue host for this series, Monks Jazz Club in east Austin!

Nonprofit Spotlight: Partners in Parenting


Nonprofit Representative: Valerie Rios, Executive Director


Mission: Building a village for all new parents. Partners in Parenting (PIP) supports all of Austin’s new parents so they are confident, connected, and have the tools to reach their full potential.


Our Favorite Parts:

“What PIP does is create little villages for parents to support parents through peer-to-peer support as they embark on the journey of parenthood.”

“We recognize financial instability really contributes to the parenthood experience and for that reason, we’ve put in place additional support like grocery gift cards and additional financial support to help our families walk through the initial eight-to-ten-week programming.”

“When someone chooses to invest in PIP, they’re choosing to invest in the families of tomorrow. They’re choosing to invest in connecting and in community.”
