Our mission at House of Neighborly Service is to provide opportunities that encourage, educate, and empower the families of our Westside community. We are a community where basic needs are met, where dreams and hopes are nurtured, and where neighborly support is a way of life.
For over one hundred years the House of Neighborly Service’s purpose has never wavered: do good in the community. As a community support center rooted in San Antonio’s Westside, children through seniors are served by several programs: Kid’s Place Child Development and Treatment Center, Family Support, Senior Health, and Food Security. Kid’s Place is an evidence-based, early intervention program for lifelong success that works with children ages eighteen-months to five years. Family Support encourages healthy homes through holistic care such as home- based parenting education, case management, and meeting basic needs through their collaborators: SA Food Bank, Texas Diaper Bank, and Assistance League of SA. Finally, the Senior Health Program provides free lunch, hosts meaningful activities, and creates an intergenerational space, bringing seniors and Kid Place students together for fun, community-building. House of Neighborly Service’s impact includes more than 500 hours of early intervention therapy, 25,000 meals, 300 hours of fitness and socialization, and 15,000 diapers for families in need.
