The establishment of the Haven for Hope campus was a direct response to an unmet and serious community need. In 2006, business and civic leader Bill Greehey began to recognize the serious growing problem of homelessness in Bexar County. With the support of City leaders, Mr. Greehey then began the effort to create Haven for Hope as an independent 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. The Haven for Hope “one stop" design was born after 18 months of research of over 200 homeless shelters across the country. Today, Haven for Hope works together with over 90 Partner agencies; over 35 of those agencies provide over 150 comprehensive services directly on the campus to address barriers to self-sufficiency such as medical care (primary, dental, vision), food, legal services, mental health, substance abuse, child care, spiritual needs and much more.
