Emergency Resource Guide

San Antonio and surrounding Texas communities are struggling to return to normal after the frigid weather that came the week of February 15th. The unprecedented weather left so many of us without the resources needed to handle that kind of cold such as electricity and water.

Below is a resource guide for mutual aid and community involvement.

Find the resources you need in the list below. If you need additional help, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
