We are still taking in veterans. Intake is currently being done at these locations and times:

  • 611 N Flores; Monday - Thursday: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM and Friday: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
  • 206 San Pedro Ave; Monday - Thursday: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM and Friday: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

All American GI Forum sites are using increased protective measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Another project operated by the Veterans Enterprises of Texas is a specially designed center that provides work opportunities for veterans with disabilities that are not ready for mainstream employment. The VETS Work Center is a sheltered environment that promotes temporary work opportunities that will assist in the transformation of these veterans to reach their full potential and enter a mainstream work environment.

"VETS" is a member organization of the National Industries for the Severely Handicapped (NISH), also known as Ability-One. "VETS" seeks out contract opportunities with government and private industry to create work that will be conducive to the hiring of a workforce of disabled veterans.

The VETS Work Center’s primary work is "kitting," where assembly of products or materials into a kit create an in-product. A great example is the current contract the Work Center is performing for the U.S. Army who awards retiring soldiers a beautiful commemorative box with a folded American flag, lapel pin, a DVD of information, and some auto decals for retirees. The VETS box manufacturing company (described above) produces the box, and the disabled veterans at the VETS Work Center fold the flags and assemble the pieces to create the commemorative retirement kit.

The Center, which was specifically designed for this fulfillment work, has great warehouse space, robust electrical and pneumatic systems for contracts requiring repetitive "bench work" (i.e. electrical soldering, pneumatic hand tools, etc.). The Work Center is an important element in the continuum of care offered to veterans by the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, and it provides disabled veterans a means of recovery with pride and dignity.

Interested customers are encouraged to contact the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program for further information on the work of the VETS Work Center at (210) 223-4088. This non-profit entity is approved as a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service.

Many youth aging out of foster care and youth who grew up in abusive or neglectful homes are ill equipped to adjust to life on their own. When young adults 18-22 find themselves unprepared for the responsibilities of adulthood and without the skills necessary to live independently, they end up homeless, as drug addicts or in prostitution, and many end up in jail.

In order to combat this growing population of homeless young people, RMYA offers the TurningPoint Transitional Living program to help youth who have aged out of foster care as well as other homeless youth. These vulnerable young adults are given a safe place to live and are taught how to care for themselves so that they can become productive, empowered members of our community.

For more information about TurningPoint, please call (210) 349-3610.

Here’s how Safe Place works:

Step One – A young person enters a Safe Place and asks for help.

Step Two – The site employee finds a comfortable place for the youth to wait while they call the licensed Safe Place agency. For the greater San Antonio area that is Roy Maas Youth Alternatives (RMYA).

Step Three – Within 30 minutes, a RMYA staff member or qualified Safe Place volunteer will arrive to talk with the youth and, if necessary, provide transportation to RMYA's Centro Seguro Drop-In Center.

Step Four – Once at Centro Seguro, counselors meet with the youth and provide support. Agency staff makes sure the youth and their families receive the help and professional services they need.

This program is for youth under the age of 18 in need of immediate help and safety.

Transition Centers are "one-stop shops" that offer case management, counseling, sheltering, and life skills training to at-risk young adults. Each transition center houses and partners with government and community organizations to ensure comprehensive, yet non-duplicated, services that help youth become independent and law-abiding adults. These centers are a resource to thousands of youth aging out of the foster care system or returning home from juvenile justice institutions.

We remain open during our normal hours of operation.

Our Pregnant and Parenting Teen program, located on a 17-acre campus in New Braunfels, Texas prepares young moms for parenthood with a focus on education, life skills and positive parenting tools. We are preserving the family and strengthening the mother/child bond!

Residents of the program have initially been placed in SJRC’s care by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Most have been taken from their parents or caregivers because of some form of abuse, abandonment or neglect.

The Program provides "at-risk" mothers ages 10 to 20 years old the opportunity to receive training and guidance on parenting, job and life skills as well as social, academic and independent living skill development. Individualized therapy classes are also offered when you arrive pregnant, the mother and baby's health care needs are met throughout her pregnancy and beyond.

Our facilities offer mothers a calm and safe environment through the pregnancy stages and after the arrival of her new baby. In addition to a parenting curriculum, all of our moms attend the local public high school and receive individualized case management provided by trained and caring staff. Moms and their babies are able to stay until they are ready to transition to independent living or until they turn 21 years old. Working in the community and learning how to become a self-sufficient and productive parent and member of society are core skills these young women will learn as residents of the SJRC Texas Pregnant and Parenting Teen Program.

"At-risk" mothers ages 10 to 20.

One of the hallmarks of our program is that we have the ability to keep large groups of siblings together.

Located on a 10-acre campus in Bulverde, Texas, our Therapeutic Residential Foster Care program teaches our youth essential life skills through therapeutic relationship building. These skills address social, emotional, and behavioral issues, and provide academic support and mentoring. We are proud to say that our 38 bed facility offers a very homelike feel and our youth have the opportunity to live with other children that are close to their age and stage. Because of our unique set-up we are able to offer a home to children ages 5-21 years old, all of whom are in the managing conservatorship of the State of Texas.

Individual treatment plans, a homelike environment, and highly trained staff work together to help each child achieve their individual version of success. Many children come to us after multiple foster home placements - sometimes after as many as eight to twelve - and most arrive at least two years behind academically. Our dedicated staff work closely with the local school district to help them catch up with their peers.
