About usThe Children’s Shelter is a private, nationally accredited nonprofit corporation. Since 1901, we have provided a safe haven for child survivors of abuse, neglect, and abandonment in San Antonio and Bexar County. Today, The Children’s Shelter is a trauma-informed care certified organization that provides a continuity of care through an array of a family of services. We provide emergency shelter and therapeutic foster care for children and youth. Our Family Strengthening programs teach nurturing parenting skills to vulnerable families and help families overcome crises. Finally, our mental health clinic provides trauma-sensitive therapeutic interventions for children and families impacted by maltreatment.
