MRC Centro de Bienvenida

At the MRC Centro de Bienvenida, Catholic Charities San Antonio welcomes and assists migrants passing through San Antonio on their way to their sponsors located around the country. 

At the MRC Centro de Bienvenida, migrants receive case management to assess their needs; humanitarian aid such as food, clothing, hygiene kits, and shower facilities; and a safe place to rest while awaiting transportation to their sponsors in other cities. Additional wraparound services include counseling, legal assistance, material support, and other services are available as needed. 

We can’t do it alone. We NEED your help!

Children are coming to our community with nothing to play with. Catholic Charities is working with our community to provide love, care, and support to families and children passing through San Antonio to their sponsor families. We are in need of new toy donations so kids have the opportunity to play as kids again. Join us in providing dignity to children and families by donating new teddy bears, dolls, and toys for elementary aged children.
