Presbyterian Children’s Home and Services - https://www.pchas.org/
We help children heal from trauma so they can build healthy relationships, succeed in education and discover their own world of opportunities and possibilities. This happens by engaging a child in the context of their family issues. We know that, to end a cycle of abuse or trauma, we must work with children to clarify their thoughts and feelings and get a realistic view of each family member’s role in their life.
San Antonio Food Bank - https://safoodbank.org/
