It’s that time of year again! Back to School! Hi I’m Betsy Nava Flores, owner and broker of Harvest Real Estate and For many of us, as we begin shopping, whether in-store or online, for supplies that seem pretty basic such as crayons, pencils, notebooks, backpacks. But for many children across our region, there is a much bigger need. Since 1901, The Children’s Shelter of San Antonio has provided a safe haven for child survivors of abuse, neglect, and abandonment in San Antonio and Bexar County.
But more than providing a safe haven, The Children’s Shelter also provides a continuity of care through an array of a family of services, including emergency shelter and therapeutic foster care for children and youth. And they also provide Family Strengthening programs which teach parenting skills to vulnerable families and help families overcome crises. The Children’s shelter also provides a mental health clinic which serves through therapeutic interventions for children and families impacted by maltreatment.

The Shelter is a private non-profit organization which we believe has a great need to meet. We believe as a community we can stand alongside the Shelter and help meet even the most basic needs of the children and families served.

We welcome and encourage you to make a donation of any of the products needed. The list is included in the link below. But items such as diapers, Pull-ups, wipes, baby bottles/bottle brushes/sippie cups, basic hygiene products such as shampoo/conditioner, toothbrushes, deodorant for males and females, body wash for children and adults, new undergarments, clothing for newborn-36 months, infant socks for newborns-12 months, mittens for infants, journals and as always, large size gym bags.

To make it convenient, you may drop off your donation at our office in Old Town Helotes. We are located at 14743 Old Bandera Road, Suite 11-101 in Helotes, Texas. We are just across from the Congelato Shop. If you would like to call ahead, you can reach us at 210-889-7495! Drop offs may be made anonymously as well. We will provide a drop box for your generous gift.

As always, we can work together to serve one another.
