Help End the Cycle of Youth Homlessness in San Antonio!



A huge thanks to our good friends in the Women’s Law Association at St. Mary’s University School of Law.

They recently held a silent auction to benefit StandUp for Kids San Antonio, and at their Feb. 11 meeting, presented a check for $12,100 to Co-Executive Director Melody Bentley.

We thank the Women’s Law Association sincerely for their incredible generosity and community spirit!
