Alternative Giving – “Change the Way We Give” Campaign

Through this campaign we can address San Antonio homelessness in a targeted way
and support organizations that serve our neighbors in need of a place to call home.

About the Alternative Giving – “Change the Way We Give” Campaign

This campaign provides an alternative and compassionate way to give to organizations serving people experiencing homelessness in place of donating to people directly on the streets. Donations can be made through a secure online mobile giving application, where donors can be assured they are giving directly to Homeless Service Providers in San Antonio/Bexar County.

Funds given will be donated directly to us, SARAH, the Homelessness Continuum of Care Lead Agency. We will then equitably distribute donation funds to agencies serving people experiencing homelessness or those who are at-risk of homelessness. The funds collected will be used to support priority areas that fill gaps in our city’s homeless response system which includes homeless prevention assistance, homeless rapid resolution, shelter diversion and outreach engagement efforts.
