At The Bridge, we strive to be more than just a handout, we want to be a hand up. We want to engage in meaningful conversations with our homeless and hurting community and look them in the eyes and let them know that we care. So many of us just want to feel like we belong, and that we're seen, and for our street community it's no different.
If you don't feel comfortable engaging in conversation, we also have ways to help! You can work in our food line, in the clothing distribution, as a shower coordinator/usher (training required), cutting hair, or joining our prayer team.

When SNIPSA launched its Big Fix clinics in May 2009, more than 100 animals were being euthanized every day in San Antonio. We knew that more sterilized pets in our city would result in fewer entering shelters and fewer being euthanized.
SNIPSA holds day-long Big Fix clinics, in partnership with churches and community centers, in neighborhoods where the largest numbers of stray and un-owned animals roam the streets. To-date we have sterilized over 19,500 dogs and cats in 50 Big Fix clinics.
Big Fix clinics also save taxpayer dollars. It costs roughly $15,000 to host a Big Fix clinic, which is a smart investment considering that it would costs taxpayers almost 10 times that amount to impound, house, and ultimately euthanize the nearly 400 animals that are sterilized at a typical Big Fix clinic.
The DaisyCares Pet Food Program, in partnership with the San Antonio Food Bank, provides pet food to families through food bank and/or food pantry partners already providing emergency food assistance to families and individuals in need.
Promote Animal Welfare Education, PAWedu, is unique in that it provides education to adults who have been accused, charged, or convicted of cruelty to an animal.
This 14 lesson online course teaches adults about the humane treatment and care of animals. It helps them to examine some of their own thoughts and reactions that might not be appropriate.
Lessons include topics such as, Forms of Animal Cruelty – Abandonment, Animal Fighting, Causing Unnecessary Suffering, and The Link between Animal Cruelty and Human Cruelty.
The course is used to incorporate an educational or rehabilitative component into a part of the legal process that offenders undertake, if ordered by a court.
