The Children's Shelter


How The Children's Shelter impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

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 offers emergency shelter and residential treatment for children in crisis and helps children find permanent homes through foster care and adoption. Our Family Strengthening program aligns with SA2020 by teaching nurturing parenting skills to vulnerable families and helping families overcome crises.
