No one thinks about falling into hard times, but all it takes is an injury, a divorce, or a death to turn things south. We connect the people of San Antonio to the resources closest to them to take the stress & fear of losing their basic needs. Plus add to resources & people they didn't have before because they didn't know it existed or didn't know they qualified for.
