New Flagpole at TLLC

On September 11, 2016, Patriots Day, Eagle Scout candidate Nathan Bielawski dedicated a flagpole at the Transitional Learning and Living Center to service members past and present, as well as those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Bielawski, member of Boy Scout Troop 307, started construction on the flagpole in July, working every-other Saturday until completion August 27. SAMMinistries is honored to be a part of his journey to Eagle Scout.

Growing Up Homeless


Growing Up Homeless

Fifty percent of the homeless population in San Antonio are children. It’s a big number, but it doesn’t explain how it feels to be a homeless child. One brave young man opened up about it, explaining what the hardest parts are and what he wants his community to know.

KSAT helps us share the story:
