Restoring innocence and strengthening families.
The Children’s Shelter is a private, nationally accredited not-for-profit corporation. Since 1901, we have provided a safe refuge for abused, abandoned and neglected children 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 programs teach nurturing parenting skills to vulnerable families and help families overcome crises.
