Description: Haven for Hope is a place of hope and new beginnings for people in Bexar County who are experiencing homelessness. It is made up of two major programs: the Courtyard and the Transformational Campus. Both are on the Haven for Hope property and require a visit to the Intake Department to get started. The Courtyard is a low-barrier, safe sleeping program that offers shelter and basic needs. The Transformational Campus is a center that offers services and shelter with an emphasis toward addressing the root causes of homelessness.

Intake Building is located at 1 Haven for Hope Way
Intake Hours: Monday through Friday 8am to 3pm.

New arrivals to Haven for Hope’s Transformational Campus and the Courtyard are done on a walk-in basis.

To be eligible for our shelter and services you MUST:

    Proof of residency is a document that proves your status as a Bexar County resident; for example, tax documents, dated store receipts, library cards, pay stubs, hospital records, etc.
