San Antonio Community Resource Directory

We provide services that help seniors live independently in their own homes, around their familiar settings and environment, which is where they want to be, and give them peace of mind. What's unique about us is that we stay with them; we don't just drop them off and leave them to fend for themselves!

NESA is located on the grounds of MacArthur Park Lutheran Church, in the red-brick house called Faith House #5.

Volunteers choose NESA because they sympathize with our mission, and they have found it in their hearts to make a difference for those who have given so much to others throughout their lives.  Some of our clients remind volunteers of their own family members and how much they appreciate anything you can do for them. It touches their heart.

This is a one-on-one service. You will only help one senior at a time.

Ways you can help:

  • Driver
  • Telephone Reassurance
  • Shopper
  • Handy Helper
  • Office Help
  • Special Projects

Whether you can volunteer daily, weekly, or once per month, we'll match you with the best opportunity.

Call or email us for more information on how to volunteer.
