How House of Neighborly Service impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision
For over one hundred years the House of Neighborly Service's purpose has never wavered: do good in the community. As a community support center rooted in San Antonio's Westside, children through seniors are served through four focus areas: Child Development, Food Security, Senior Health and Family Support with several programs under each focus area. Kid's Place is a child development center that works with children ages fourteen-months to five years that helps facilitate lifelong success. Out of school time program, Peace Pals, enrolls children from Kinder through 8th grade. Family Support encourages healthy homes through holistic care with case management and meeting basic needs through their collaborators: SA Food Bank, Texas Diaper Bank, and Assistance League of SA. Finally, the Senior Health Program provides free lunch, hosts meaningful activities, and creates an intergenerational space, bringing seniors and Kids Place students together for fun, community-building. House of Neighborly Service's impact includes more than 500 hours of early intervention therapy, 25,000 meals, 300 hours of fitness and socialization, and 15,000 diapers for families in need.
