What We Do

Our Program

Our Program

Magdalena House is a beautiful 5-acre neighborhood of transitional homes in San Antonio that serves mothers and their children who have fled dangerous and abusive lives. Women and their children receive wraparound services and 24/7 support in a home-like environment, full of hope and accountability. Utilizing a dual-generation approach, we provide safe homes in an expansive natural environment, basic needs and educational programming, nurturing community and therapeutic services.

Mothers attend accredited academic programs year-round, including college, high school, GED or ESOL. They participate in enrichment courses, life skill and parenting classes, healthcare education. Families stay with us for multiple years until they have completed their educational goals. They are connected to community resources and are provided with supportive legal services. Special community gatherings and events for families model and cultivate positive, supportive relationships.

Threaded throughout our programs and community life are holistic therapeutic services designed to foster self-awareness and emotional healing. Both mother and child develop social, emotional, educational, and financial skills needed to ensure their physical, economic, and spiritual well-being when they leave Magdalena House.
