Destined For Victory - Paul Sheppard

Foster and Adopt: A Community of Support

Children and families in our community are in crisis. There are more abused and neglected children in San Antonio than there are families willing to serve them. Due to a lack of safe, loving, supporting homes, our youngest victims of abuse and neglect are swept into the foster system. Most people are largely unaware of the crisis and the many ways they can serve as part of the solution.

Join Jennifer Smith, President of South Texas Alliance for Orphans, as she provides an informative and insightful presentation on the foster care system in San Antonio and how YOU can get involved. Jennifer will also share how she is working to solve this problem by addressing the problem at its roots.

Through church and local organization partnerships The Alliance seeks to engage and equip individuals, families, and communities of San Antonio to join the effort to help break the foster care crisis cycle.

Every community member has a unique role in serving abused and neglected children.

Become trauma informed to help kids heal

Become a certified babysitter to foster families

Mentor children in the foster system

Become a foster parent

Donate needed supplies to support foster families

When community members of all ages, single or married, discover their role, we will be a community with a network of More than Enough for every child and family impacted by the foster care system.

Join us and learn how you can help shape a city-culture that understands trauma, the foster system, and the many ways to meet the diverse needs.

Everyone can help, discover your role!
