Family Service brings over 115 years of social service experience, assisting families with basic needs as one of the immediate priorities. Family Service is able to provide resource and referral as well as case management assistance to families in need when they most need it. Even though our organization does not provide monetary assistance, we are able to link families with other services, both within the agency and with other organizations in the community. Latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate the population of families living at poverty level in the San Antonio metropolitan area is about 16% compared to near 11.7% country wide. These families find themselves facing unemployment, hunger, not having a medical home or medical insurance, and or loss of their homes. Children who come from broken homes are at a greater risk of dropping out of school.
Throughout the year, the agency received donations from the community in order to support Margaret’s Place and Margaret’s Place Too. Both locations provide clients with an abundantly well stocked pantry of adult and children donated toiletries, toys, diapers, wipes, car seats and other infant or child supplies for families who are in crisis. Margaret’s Place is a place to meet a family’s most basic needs before they start mending the other cuts and bruises that life may have inflicted upon them. For many, this is an opportunity to start over and to regain a sense of dignity as they move on. If you would like to financial contribute to strengthen families with most basic needs, DONATE NOW!
