Hotlines and Virtual Assistance

Methodist Healthcare Ministries provides practical support to help parents and guardians learn parenting skills so they will be more confident and more competent leaders within their families.

Using an evidence-informed curriculum and led by a parenting coordinator, Meld brings together parents who have similar parenting needs to educate parents on health and safety, child guidance and development, family management, personal development, and other topics related to successful parenting.

Meld stems from the belief that parents can, and do: learn from each other; give one another support; need to be free to make informed decisions about their families and can cooperate in groups while maintaining their individuality.

Meld groups meet once a week for two hours at various locations around San Antonio. Group participants are eligible to attend a free annual field trip.

There are three Meld programs, each geared toward the needs of the parents within the group.

  • Meld Young Families for parents ages 13 to 25
  • Meld Growing Families for parents ages 26 and older, grandparents raising grandchildren, or other family members who take an active role in the parenting of children
  • Meld Special Needs group, designed specifically for parents or caregivers raising children living with a wide range of illnesses and disabilities

A complimentary meal and child care are provided during group sessions.

Transportation assistance is available.

English, Spanish and bilingual groups are available.

Community Counselors help people who are uninsured, whose existing coverage does not provide mental health services benefits, are low-income and lack the money to pay for counseling services, or who would not receive treatment any other way. Counseling services are provided by trained, licensed professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, and licensed marriage and family counselors. Sessions are private and conducted in a safe and familiar environment such as churches and community centers.
