H.I.S. BridgeBuilders-San Antonio is a movement of God uniting Christians across cities to transform urban communities through education, health, employment, and spiritual development for the glory of God. The organization is a 501 (c) (3). The ministry was established in 2006.
The work is centered on San Antonio's near east side, in the East Meadows (formerly Wheatley Courts) area, where per capita income is one third that of the remainder of San Antonio, where 74.7% of the children live below the federal poverty level, and where 53% of the adults have not graduated from High School.
We believe that the strength of H.I.S. BridgeBuilders-San Antonio is the emphasis we place on relationships―a strong and deepening relationship with God, and growing relationships with one another. Each activity, event and program is aimed at these growing relationships.
We want all children of the neighborhood to succeed in life and in school. To bolster their educational experiences, we offer after school tutoring and homework help during the school year, and a summer reading program where the children read to an adult and write a short report about each book read. The children are given $1.00 for each book completed.
Available to school-age children and youth in and around the East Meadows (formerly Wheatley Courts) area.
This group works with youth to teach them to be young men and women who exhibit the Proverbs 31 virtues of wisdom, kindness, and diligence and unashamed followers of Jesus Christ. They are also active in serving the community.
Available to school-age girls and boys in and around the East Meadows (formerly Wheatley Courts) area.
Monthly neighborhood meetings are sponsored to build unity in the community and to give us opportunities to develop relationships with the parents and other care givers of our children. Each event includes a free meal, live Christian music, and clothing. Seasonally, other items such as school supplies, Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gifts are also provided.
All of our neighbors in and around the East Meadows (formerly Wheatley Courts) area are welcome.
