Family Service Association is honored to be the oldest human services agency in San Antonio. This year, we are happy to celebrate 110 years of delivering effective solutions to the challenges and problems that impede the success of individuals and families. You will find us wherever there are families in distress, children needing protection and educational opportunities, elders seeking independence, teens refuting the culture of substance abuse and gangs, returning warriors trying to find normalcy and employees seeking a healthier work-life balance. We’re changing lives every day.
2013: We are there!
Throughout the year, Family Service will have a dynamic presence in all the usual places – neighborhoods and school campuses, classrooms, child care centers, homes, parenting classes, counseling offices, The Neighborhood Place – wherever families are in crisis or in need of a boost to get back on the playing field – stronger, wiser and healthier.
And in Unexpected Venues, Too
We are partnering with other businesses and organizations to celebrate their key anniversaries or decades of service. You’ll find us at health fairs, grand openings, sporting events, schools, citywide celebrations of every stripe. We’ll be there to raise awareness of the ongoing needs of those who look to us for services. Let us know if your school, business or organization is celebrating a key anniversary … and we can partner to spread the word about San Antonio’s best resources.
Visit our Anniversary Mural
Family Service has a gift for our community and we invite you to see it. In a city that rejoices in art and history, our 110th Anniversary mural by artist David Blancas is commanding much excitement. The expansive mural spans the north side of our building at 702 San Pedro and graphically illustrates “family” in various forms. It also honors the role of social services in strengthening families with a depiction of Jane Addams, the matriarch of American social change. The ground floor of the mural is painted in acrylic directly on the brick façade and the remainder is constructed of a dozen panels that combine to create a mural that soars three stories. The mural is part of Project Inspire: Mural Arts Program and the City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs Community Arts Access Program. Come by our main office at 702 San Pedro to see this magnificent work of art!
