AfterSchool HACA Sites Start today!

TAP began programming in collaboration with HACA (Housing Authority of the City of Austin) in February of 2010, and we’re thrilled to be beginning our fourth semester with the communities at Booker T. Washington, Meadowbrook, Shadowbend, and our second semester at Goodrich Apartments. Some of our past projects at HACA sites have included:  Giant puppets and a community garden at Booker T., filmmaking at Meadowbrook and Shadowbend, the creation of a “class pet” at Shadowbend and Goodrich, and drumming and dancing at Meadowbrook.
