The causes of homelessness are diverse and can be overpowering. In San Antonio, people experiencing homelessness find their way to the Courtyard at Haven for Hope, where The Center for Health Care Services provides shelter and opens the door to medical, mental health and social work assistance.
CHCS works to transform the lives of our community’s homeless, offering programs that give people a safe place to stay and an opportunity to recover and stablize. The Center offers a portal to change – psychological, medical and social assistance that leads to secure shelter, productivity and independence. Whether it’s a safe place to spend the night, or a path to transformation, The Center for Health Care Services provides a way.

I was caught in a recurring cycle, using, getting picked up, serving my time, getting out to use again. But this time, they said something I never expected. The officer asked if wanted to go to jail, or go to the CHCS sobering unit. I had never been given a choice before. It’s all based on hope. You can see change if you have hope. You can see a different way to live your life, and hope helps you have the courage to explore the possibilities.Zachary Bullard
