I’m excited to be writing our first blog post at the beginning of Eva’s Heroes tenth anniversary year! We have so many exciting activities planned for our year-long celebration that you’ll want to check back every other week to be sure you don’t miss anything.
Since the beginning back in 2006, Eva’s Heroes has experienced great expansion in the breadth and depth of our services. Today our programs affect more than just participants; we also impact families. It’s so rewarding to see firsthand how Eva’s Heroes is making a difference in the lives of participants and their entire family.
Eva’s Heroes is unique to San Antonio because it specifically serves more than 1,500 individuals with intellectual special needs ages 14 years and older. Many wonderful South Texas area organizations offer services for younger children, but parents of older kiddos with special needs are often faced with the heart-breaking challenge of finding a safe, unique, yet challenging environment for their teens and young adults. That explains the popularity of our Summer Enrichment Program, which saw record enrollment last year. Our programs have grown so much that we now have waiting lists for all of them. We’re working really hard to accommodate everyone.
Throughout the year, we will look back on all of our great memories and share our plans for the next 10 years.
Until next time, meet Seth. Listen to his story. Hear him speak, get to know him. And get to know us, Eva’s Heroes.
