Corazon Celebrates 25 Years


Cafe Corazon was founded in the Fellowship Hall of Travis Park Church on Sunday, March 28th, 1999. A group of young disciples had the radical idea of feeding people every Sunday morning and the spirit and practice of unconditional love and justice in action was born. Corazon Ministries San Antonio continues strong 25 years later with nearly 30 employees and an engaged community of volunteers and supporters. The mission has expanded far beyond the Café Corazon at Travis Park Church and into the Grace Lutheran Church where we operate a Resource Hub that includes a Day Center, Harm Reduction, Outreach, and Health Services. Deborah’s House, our sober living home, welcomes 13 women at any given time to continue their sobriety journey and work to find self-sufficiency and peace. We work alongside other critical homeless response system partners in our community to ensure our unhoused have the services they need while we work them through our community resources to a place of more stable living and housing.

What we do
