Holistic Care for Healthy Homes
Our Family Support program empowers families to build healthy homes. We offer compassionate, non-judgemental support for parents of young children. Early interventions are critical - what happens in your first years of life has lifelong impacts.
Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect
We provide small group and in-home parenting education classes using “The Nurturing Parenting Programs” curriculum. This curriculum is recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the National Registry for Evidence-based Parenting Programs, and a number of state and local agencies.
Supporting Caretakers Experiencing Depression
Research shows the wide impact of parental depression on children’s emotional, behavioral, and cognitive development. The families we serve are living in deep poverty and do not have access to much-needed services. In collaboration with Seton Home, we offer individualized therapy here at HNS. With wide-ranging partnerships, we advocate for parents to get the care they need.
Helping Families Meet Basic Needs
Family Support Specialists support families through a variety of challenges, including medical, housing, and legal. We partner with the Texas Diaper Bank and the Assistance League of San Antonio to distribute diapers and clothing. Our weekly Thrift Store also provides much needed clothing and household items at deeply discounted prices.
