amily Service is the oldest human service nonprofit in San Antonio, established in 1903 and serving in 13 counties across South Texas. In March, 1903, the doors of a revolutionary new social service agency opened in San Antonio for the first time. The Charity Association of San Antonio and Bexar County, predecessor of Family Service Association of San Antonio, Inc., was founded by a group of public-minded community leaders. Their goal was to provide financial assistance to poor and needy families and prevent their exploitation by unscrupulous individuals. Although Family Service Association’s objectives and methodologies have changed over the years, its commitment to its mission of strengthening families has remained constant.
Today the programs of Family Service continue to support positive family values, respect the changing role of the family, and assist children, seniors, and families to deal effectively with their problems and challenges. Family Service programs include Education, Counseling & Senior Services, Job Training & Financial Stability, and Parent & Community Involvement.
Family Services’ Mission: Empowering individuals and families to transform their lives and strengthen their community.
