About Us

Each year, an estimated 4.2 million youth experience homelessness in the United States. According to the National Center for Homeless Education, Texas is home to approximately 10 percent of the country’s homeless youth and children. Many are children “aging out” of the foster care system. The Young Adult Stability & Support (YASS) Center provides a safe and supportive space where young people (ages 18-24) can access resources and services that help them recover from the trauma of housing insecurity, to assist them in building upon strengths, achieving housing stability, and setting a course to realize their full potential. YASS is a partnership between SAMMinistries, SA Youth, and Corazón San Antonio, Inc.
