Are you in need of
Emergency Shelter?

Thrive Youth Center is here to help you in your time of need. We have a variety of programs and resources that can help you or someone you know that may be struggling with their mental health, homelessness, or any other life issue that many of our LGBTQIA+ youth are facing in the San Antonio area. We offer services to young adults ages 18-24 including housing, mental health services, life skills, & crisis counseling. 

If you are in need of help, please send us a message on our Contact Us page, email us at or give us a call at 210.212.2935. Our case managers can identify your needs and connect you to the right resources for your situation. 

Additionally, if you would like to donate to Thrive Youth Center to help us continue our mission of serving our LGBTQIA+ youth, please click the link below to join our Friends of Thrive network.

We also accept non monetary donations of items from our Amazon wish list or items for our emergency shelter. Follow the link below to view our wish list and learn more about how you can help us serve our community.
