We have a great resource from the City of San Antonio for those who were impacted by the winter storm.

There has been a lot of news about the recent cleanup of “tent city” near our downtown campus. It’s a complicated issue and we love our clients dearly. We were honored to be here to help City leaders, other outreach workers who work for nonprofits and City staff to help those who are living on the street. CAM was honored to stand with those we serve and the community to help during this difficult time and provide resources. If you have any questions, please click here for a message from our President/CEO further explaining this occurrence. Prayers are always a great first step!

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.
