What is Change the Way We Give?

The San Antonio Alternative Giving “Change the Way We Give” Campaign is a meaningful way that residents can compassionately give to organizations serving people experiencing homelessness in lieu of donating to people directly on the streets. This initiative will be executed through an online mobile giving application, where donors can be assured they are giving directly to Homeless Service Providers addressing priority areas that fill gaps in the San Antonio’s homeless response system. The funds will be donated directly to the Homelessness Continuum of Care Lead Agency, the South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless (SARAH), to be distributed equitably to agencies serving people experiencing and at-risk of homelessness.

Funding Priorities

  1. Homelessness Prevention Assistance (e.g. rent/utility assistance, application fees)
  2. Rapid Resolution & Homeless Shelter Diversion (e.g. bus passes, moving costs)
  3. Outreach Engagement Efforts (e.g. transportation, ID recovery)
