SAN ANTONIO – Local nonprofits are feeling the financial burden of the coronavirus pandemic. Haven for Hope CEO Kenny Wilson said once the virus started affecting our community, the organization decided to suspend all volunteer work to keep everyone as safe as possible. Now there are limited resources dedicated to one of the city’s most vulnerable populations- those experiencing homelessness.

  • Masks
