The October 1st Safety Action is organized by The San Antonio Neighborhood Coalition, a growing multiracial and multilingual coalition of residents, merchants, renters, homeowners, families, schools, and community and faith organizations working together to improve the health and safety of our neighborhood. Our founding members include EBAYC, Trybe, San Antonio Family Resource Center Parent Action Research Team, Garfield Elementary School, Friends of San Antonio Park, Community School for Creative Education, and St. Anthony’s Mary Help of Christians Parish.
2022 has started out roughly as we face the omicron surge but it hasn’t stopped us from doing what we do best – to serve our youth and families. As we grappled with the pandemic’s toll on our community, we are charged and inspired by our resilient youth and families, committed staff, and dedicated volunteers. We want to share our 2021 Year End Snapshot, a year that was marked with challenges, heartbreaks, and triumph. We sincerely thank you – our ardent supporters, who have stood by us to face the moment every step of the way.
The COVID-19 pandemic completely transformed our work in the past year. Our staff responded with ingenuity and humanity, building a food pantry from the ground up, distributing nearly $100,000 in emergency funds, and providing direct outreach to our community, many of whom are amongst those hardest hit by the financial, mental and physical toll of the pandemic.
Our youth and families have shown dignity and grace in the face of crisis and we are proud to share their stories.
Our latest annual report celebrates 41 years of serving our community and features stories from our youth and parents on the impact EBAYC has made in their lives. Click below to read our annual report, and click here to access our financials, board and staff listings, and donors.
