Annual Member's Only Holiday Luncheon + Toy Drive
As the end of the year draws near, let's gather together to celebrate our successes over the past year and look forward to the new year. Join us for our annual holiday luncheon at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bare on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
This holiday season, our chapter is supporting the Children's Shelter of San Antonio. Please bring one new unwrapped toy as a donation. Let's make a child smile this holiday season. We ask that toys be age appropriate and that they are non-violent toys (not guns, knives, or swords). Children's ages range from 0 - 16 years.
About the Children's Shelter:Emergency Shelter
The Children's Shelter Zachary Cottage is a trauma informed care environment that can accommodate up to 6 children who are newborn up to 16 years of age. Children in our care come from hard places and face emotional challenges due to chronic trauma of prolonged abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. When children are placed at the emergency shelter, they receive medical, dental, and psychological assessments to understand their individual situations. During their stay, children experience normal activities such as school and recreational time, as well as specialized activities, case management, and other activities to meet their needs. Children placed at the emergency shelter stay as little as 72-hours and up to 90 days.
Permanency (Foster Care & Adoption)
Therapeutic foster homes provide care for children birth through 18 years old who have faced acute or chronic trauma associated with abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. Therapeutic foster care ranges from overnight to several years, with the average stay being 18 months. Foster parents may elect to adopt children when their biological parent's rights have been terminated.
