House of Neighborly Service
The House of Neighborly Service (HNS) is a nonprofit, multi-service neighborhood center which has been providing social services to the low-income, Hispanic residents of the Westside of San Antonio for almost 100 years. Founded in 1917 by Presbyterian missionaries, HNS became incorporated as a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization in 1971.
House of Neighborly Service serves children, families and seniors who primarily reside in zip codes 78207, 78228, and 78237. HNS provides an Early Intervention Program (EIP) to help prevent and reduce child abuse and neglect; a Senior Lunch and Outreach Program to enhance the physical and mental health of seniors; a Food Distribution Program to feed the hungry. The EIP has three components: in-home parenting education, KID's Place Child Development/ Treatment Center, and mental health services.
