Our Mission is to provide a safe and nurturing shopping experience for teenagers in need. Our target age group is 12-21 years of age; to include teens in foster care, teens that have aged out of foster care, homeless teens, or other teens in need of support. We project that we will serve over 2,000 referred teens this year providing them complete outfits and accessories FOR FREE.
San Antonio Threads provides a safe and nurturing shopping experience for teens who are homeless, in the foster care system, in emergency situations, or otherwise referred to the nonprofit. With increased social skills, confidence, and the right attire, teens served by San Antonio Threads are supported in reaching their education and career goals. Each youth is provided a free and individualized shopping experience that includes two outfits, full size toiletries, five pairs of underwear, five pairs of socks, a backpack, a hoodie, and a pair of shoes. In addition to allowing teens to focus on their education and careers, San Antonio Threads alleviates the stress put on families to afford basic necessities. In 2019, San Antonio Threads plans to serve 2,000 young people.
