Its mission is to provide a safe and nurturing shopping experience for teens (ages 12-21) who are homeless, in the foster care system, in emergency situations, or otherwise referred to the nonprofit.
In addition to allowing teens to focus on their education and careers, Threads alleviates the stress on families to afford basic necessities. Threads provides teens with a genuine shopping experience of new items where they can select two complete outfits, full-size toiletries, five pairs of underwear, five pairs of socks, a backpack, a hoodie, and a pair of shoes. With increased social skills, confidence, and the right attire, teens served by San Antonio Threads are supported in reaching their education and career goals.
San Antonio Threads welcomes corporate volunteer groups, church or civic groups, and individuals. Volunteer opportunities are Monday-Friday, 9 am-12 pm and most Saturdays 10 am-2 pm. Please call or submit a volunteer form via the website.
San Antonio Threads serves over 500 teens a month and is always in need of new packages of socks, underwear (men and women), toiletries, hoodies, and denim and khaki pants.
