Bexar County and San Antonio low income housing and shelter.

The San Antonio region has a number of transitional housing units and shelter for very low income families, individuals, and even the homeless. Some of the leading centers in the region are below. Each will offer their own services to qualified clients. In general, most of the housing assistance programs in Bexar County will require that individuals participate in case management and self-sufficiency services as well.

The shelter programs will generally allow people to stay for a short period of time, and it may be a few days or a week. The next step in the process will usually be transitional housing, which will allow someone to stay for a longer period of time and also usually provide additional services such as employment assistance, food, job training, and credit counseling. Clients may also be assigned to a social type worker who will help them find longer term, more permanent housing in the Bexar County region, including low income apartments.

Social workers also can help the low income if they are struggling to overcome a history of eviction. Many Bexar County landlords are hesitant to lease to what they think are high risk tenants. But there are ways to get support here, even tips for getting an eviction off of your record. While it is not easy, it can be done, and it can get the individuals out of a shelter..
