Back to School Program

Change a child’s life! Every year, CAM organizes, coordinates and hosts the Back-to-School Program; a donation drive benefiting over 300 children. Most people aren’t aware, but thousands of children start each school year without the proper supplies needed and required by the school districts.  For a list of School Supply Events in San Antonio, click here.

We’ve kicked off CAM’s annual Back-to-School Program! If you’re interested in helping in areas of this program such as volunteering or passing out backpacks to the children, click here.

Why Wheat?

The wheat logo for CAM references our commitment to sharing and caring for all of those in need by feeding them, clothing them, by providing financial assistance and by feeding their soul through grace and love. Wheat is often a symbol of life, sustainability, charity and love. Wheat is a global sustainer of life being utilized to create various forms of bread in different cultures. Historically people planted, harvested and broke bread together for the betterment of their community. Celebrating this incredible bounty by giving back was and is an important part of all cultures. Today many of us harvest in different ways and sharing our bounty with others is still incredibly important.: "When you harvest the crops on your land, do not cut all the way to the corners of your field. Don’t pick up the grain that falls on the ground. Leave it for the poor…"

Leviticus, 23:22


Just like a triage or emergency room, people come to CAM in all sort of crisis. No appointment is necessary and all are welcome.

What We Do

Our mission is to share the love of Christ by providing immediate assistance and encouragement to people in crisis. We do this in the following ways:
CAM serves over 50,000 people on an annual basis with important “safety net” resources including food, clothing, financial assistance for prescriptions, utilities and ID recovery just to name a few. We strive to meet their immediate needs to avoid further crisis and then help them gain access to additional community resources. 75% of those we serve are working poor and 14,000 are children
We work with over 200 volunteers in San Antonio, Texas. Want to join our community?
Every person who comes to CAM, regardless of beliefs, is considered a child of God. Help is extended to all clients through the distribution of food, clothing, financial assistance, or by referrals to other agencies, prayer and a listening ear.
