Editor's note: CultureMap is committed to shining a light on San Antonio-area nonprofits and their impact on our community. So, we're launching the CultureMap San Antonio Charity Challenge, highlighting deserving local organizations — one of which will become our charity partner for 2016 based on readers' votes. To help you decide, get to know one of our six selected finalists, The Children's Shelter.

No child should ever be subjected to abuse. The Children’s Shelter is a nationally accredited nonprofit committed to ending the cycle of abuse by saving one child at a time. Since 1901, The Children’s Shelter has served as a safe haven for child survivors of abuse, neglect, and abandonment in San Antonio and Bexar County.

The organization’s mission of restoring innocence and strengthening families rings true in every aspect of its work. The Children’s Shelter is a trauma-informed care certified organization that offers emergency shelter and residential treatment for children in crisis. Additionally, the organization helps children find permanent homes through foster care and adoption, ensuring that each child’s innocence is truly restored.

When children seek help from The Children’s Shelter, they become a part of a family of services and true commitment to a better life.

Vote now for The Children’s Shelter — or any of the other worthy local nonprofits — in the CultureMap Charity Challenge running through December 30. A winner will be announced January 5, 2016, and will receive a CultureMap advertising package worth $10,000.
