Our Story

Here for Good

Providing Opportunities for the Community

We have humbly served San Antonio’s Westside for over 100 years and will be here for hundreds more. Our purpose has never waivered: do good in our community.

Our Westside roots run deep. We are intimately connected to this community’s rich culture and history.

What today serves over a thousand neighbors annually began as a small Presbyterian mission in 1917.
