Continuing service with current participants. Mentors are reaching out to check on individual needs during this time.
We are a non-profit, ecumenical ministry designed to Introducing adolescents to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith. We do this by:
* Praying for kids.
* Going where kids are.
* Building personal relationships with them.
* Winning the right to be heard.
* Providing experiences that are fun, adventurous
* Sharing our lives and the Good News of Jesus Christ
* Inviting them to personally respond to the Good News.
* Loving them regardless of their responses.
* Nurturing kids so they might grow in their love for Christ
and the knowledge of God’s Word and become people who
can share their faith with others.
* Helping young people develop the skills, assets and
attitudes to reach their full God-given potential.
* Encouraging kids to live connected to the Body of Christ by
being an active member of a local congregation.
* Working with a team of like-minded individuals — volunteer
leaders, committee members, donors and staff.
Sidewalk Saturdays are back in operation. Please come if you need help.
Every Saturday from 8am -11am we serve a hot meal, hand bags of groceries, offer clothing and toiletries, and haircuts once a month. We have an Outreach Pavilion where people can come in out of the heat or cold and sit at tables and be served. A playground is available for children to play.
For the safety of our clients and employees, the Good Sam campus is only partially open. Some services are still being offered via telephone and video conferencing. Please call for information - (210) 434-5531.
The center serves seniors living on San Antonio’s west side with programs including health and nutrition classes, dance therapy sessions, and arts and crafts activities.
The Senior Center offers hot, nutritious lunches daily as part of its nutrition program.
Free health screenings are regularly available through a partnership with the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio.
Throughout the year, the Senior Center also hosts various holiday and cultural celebrations.
For many seniors living in the surrounding community, Good Sam fulfills a vital need, reducing social isolation and improving their quality of life.

Meals will be delivered Monday-Thursday. Meals will not be delivered on Fridays as we work to minimize interactions for everyone's safety.
Potential new clients are screened over the phone and put on meal service as quickly as possible.
