One Person can make a difference in the life of a child.

Our children need you! Being a volunteer is a rewarding experience. There are many available volunteer opportunities for groups and individuals including special events, tutoring, mentoring or on campus beautification projects! When you give your time to a child in need, you are making a lifetime impact helping to break the cycle of abuse and neglect. Contact Jesus Gonzalez at 210-659-1901 or email for more information.
