Visitation House (Nonprofit / Catholic)
Visitation House enables mothers and their children to live in safety and security, and provides supportive services to those who are experiencing homelessness or at risk. The majority of homeless families are headed by young, single women with children. Life is difficult for these families. We aim to educate and empower these women and children by providing safe, stable housing and access to educational resources.
We Serve in Three Ways: • The first is Education integrated with a subsidized transitional housing program– For single mothers with young children who are experiencing homelessness or near homelessness. Families live separately in their transitional housing apartments while the moms pursue their education goals and learn life skills. • The second is Education for the children - An afterschool tutoring program, child specific learning, play zones, birthday parties, holiday celebrations, field trips and summer programs. • The third is Education for the Community – Outreach education services for women with limited education from the San Antonio Area.
