Who We Serve

Children in Immediate Crisis

When a child is out-of-control, severely depressed, struggling in school or in personal relationships, it can be difficult for a parent or caregiver to know where to turn for help. The RMYA Family Counseling Resource Center is a great place to start. For more information on our counseling services for children and families click here or call (210) 340-7933.

The Bridge Emergency Shelter provides 24-hour care for children 5-17 years of age who need a safe place to stay for a short period of time. Each child is evaluated for medical, dental, and mental health needs, and our dedicated staff provides guidance and support. Each resident also receives individual and group counseling at our Family Counseling and Resource Center with master’s level therapists to help them navigate toward healing from the abuse or neglect they have experienced.

Families in Crisis

The RMYA Family Counseling and Resource Center provides counseling services to community families as well as to the residents in our programs. Our master’s level therapists are available to help families struggling with parent-child conflicts, anxiety, substance abuse, runaways, emotional control issues and more. Counselors also partner with UT Health Science Center psychiatric residents to provide a short-term psychiatric clinic for community children waiting to be seen by a private psychiatrist. Services are offered to the community on a sliding scale, and we accept several types of Medicaid. Parenting classes are also available.

Youth in Transition to Adulthood

The TurningPoint Transitional Living Program serves youth 18-21 years of age who have aged out of the foster system or experienced homeless. TurningPoint provides a safe home environment while youth learn life skills in cooking and nutrition, home management, interview and job skills, education, transportation, and community involvement. The program aims to give participants the tools they need to live independently and successfully, and to prevent or reduce their future involvement with social service and judicial systems. TurningPoint youth also receive counseling and guidance from therapists at our Family Counseling and Resource Center. Click here or call (210) 349-3610 to learn more about the TurningPoint program.
