In the City For Good

City of San Antonio – Interfaith Based Initiative

The Interfaith Initiative’s Focus and Vision is:

“To facilitate relational collaboration, active partnerships and networked services between the San Antonio faith community, government agencies, non-profit organizations and community groups towards improving the lives of families and communities in need.”

The Initiative maintains a text based “Urgent SA Response List“.  The list is used to alert volunteers to urgent human needs or services that will benefit from a concerted and well-informed effort.  Text Compassion to 55000 to sign up.

Participation in The Initiative is voluntary. For more information and/or to sign up yourself, congregation or organization: Rev. Ann Helmke at 210.207.5036.
