Funding would allow us to build a playground structure for the kids, support our dad’s program, and fund emergency expenses facing our clients, which we call Barrier Busters that can derail recovery.

"Having an outlet for the children who reside with their parents onsite will allow the families to strengthen their bonds through play. We are thankful to State Farm for the opportunity to continue helping vulnerable families in the San Antonio region," said Ramon Gonzales, Residential Treatment Director.

State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods The State Farm Review Committee selected the top 200 finalists from 2,000 submissions.
