The Children's Shelter

About The Children's Shelter

The Children’s Shelter is a private, nationally accredited nonprofit corporation. Since 1901, we have provided a safe haven for child survivors of abuse, neglect, and abandonment in San Antonio and Bexar County. Today, The Children’s Shelter is a trauma-informed care certified organization that provides a continuum of care through our family of services. We provide emergency shelter and therapeutic residential treatment for children in crisis and helps children find permanent homes through treatment foster care. Our Family Strengthening programs teach nurturing parenting skills to vulnerable families and help families overcome crises. Finally, our mental health clinic provides trauma-sensitive therapeutic interventions for children impacted by maltreatment.
