Creating Brighter Futures

The Children’s Shelter is a private, nationally accredited nonprofit corporation. Since 1901, we have provided a safe haven for child survivors of abuse, neglect, and abandonment in San Antonio and Bexar County. Today, The Children’s Shelter is a trauma-informed care certified organization that provides a continuum of care through our family of services.

We provide emergency shelter and therapeutic residential treatment for children in crisis and helps children find permanent homes through treatment foster care. Our Family Strengthening programs teach nurturing parenting skills to vulnerable families and help families overcome crises. Finally, our mental health clinic provides trauma-sensitive therapeutic interventions for children impacted by maltreatment.

Protecting Our Furry Friends

The San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) medically treats and rehabilitates thousands of dogs and cats every year. Many of the dogs and cats in our care have been abused, injured, surrendered by their owners or found as strays. As a no-kill organization, every treatable pet in our care stays in our care until they find a home or necessary placement with another no-kill organization. Thousands of dogs and cats in San Antonio and its surrounding areas are saved from euthanasia every year due to the mission and practices of the SAHS.

Through our adoption, volunteer, foster, spay/neuter and educational programs, we inform and educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership. We serve as one of the largest dog and cat adoption organizations in San Antonio, Texas, helping to decrease the community’s large pet overpopulation problem in a humane manner.

Fostering Local Arts

San Anto Cultural Arts is a nonprofit founded in 1993 with the mission to foster human and community development through community-based arts. A focus on art through community engagement led to the creation of two community-based arts programs: The Community Mural & Public Art Program, and El Placazo Community Newspaper & Mentor Program. These dynamic programs engage residents and foster the talents of youth by educating them on the history and techniques of public art. Our programs document and preserve the rich history and heritage of the Westside. ​
