Why We Measure:

By using data as the foundation of our work, we seek to show that for our young people to succeed, the systems they experience must change. The data show that our systems are not equitable for Bexar County’s young people, especially our Black and Latinx communities. We believe in using data to inform our partners and community, to compel action to change these systems and to help our young people be ready for the future.

Who Utilizes This Data:

  • Researchers
  • Practioners
  • Community Members
  • Youth and Families

Where We Seek Change:

We believe in the importance of disaggregating data by race, ethnicity, income, gender, and citizenship status whenever possible. This can then help those in power make informed decisions on how existing disparities within systems lead to disparities in outcomes.

Monday-Thursday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Friday: 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Excel Beyond the Bell San Antonio began in 2012 as a professional network to develop and ensure standards for five-star youth development programs and to ensure young people in Bexar County have access to the developmental relationships they need to succeed.

Data provided to the network from local school districts helps all partners better understand young people in their organizations and it empowers youth development leaders to not just anecdotally know why developmental relationships are important — it provides them with evidence on which to base organizational decisions.

At The Salvation Army, all hands are on deck to do what we do every day of the year—meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable people.

We all know that social distancing is the best way to flatten the curve, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. We want to help you. Here’s how:

  • Social Distancing: If you have needs for groceries or other household items, please contact us. We will direct you to the nearest resource location that can meet your needs.
  • Prayer Requests: We desire to lift you and your family up in prayer. We have a team of people committed to praying for you. Please give us your prayer requests and know that we will pray for you consistently during this time.
  • Life Navigation Needs: If you are in crisis and need housing, rehabilitation or other emergency services, we can connect you with a resource that can help you.
  • Spiritual and Emotional Care: If you need someone to talk to, let us know! Drop us a line, and we will have a caring friend call you to share a few words of encouragement.
  • Activities to Do at Home: Here are a few activities to help you pass the time while at home. We hope these activities can create some happy memories and that we can be a part of bringing your family closer together.

    To submit your need, click here.

Whether you need essentials like food, household items and water, or know someone who does, we hope that this information hub can be a resource for you and for those you love.

Here’s how Safe Place works:

Step One – A young person enters a Safe Place and asks for help.

Step Two – The site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the licensed Safe Place agency. For the greater San Antonio area that is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA).

Step Three – Within 30 minutes, a RMYA staff member or qualified Safe Place volunteer will arrive to talk with the youth and, if necessary, provide transportation to RMYA's Centro Seguro Drop-In Center.

Step Four – Once at Centro Seguro, counselors meet with the youth and provide support. Agency staff makes sure the youth and their families receive the help and professional services they need.

This program is for youth under the age of 18 in need of immediate help and safety.

Free.
