No one is useless in the world who

lightens the burdens of another

How We Help

Taking It One Step Further

De Novo is proud to offer a needed service in a way that is not being offered by any other organization in greater San Antonio.

There are currently several organizations in the community that help to fund the homeless and marginalized by paying for immediate needs. The De Novo takes this critical effort one step further by helping families move from fragile self-sufficiency into jobs and life situations that are more financially stable for the individual and family.

The opportunities are endless.

De Novo helps marginalized families fulfill their dreams for their future by providing funds for permits, registration, licenses, tools, equipment, basic transportation and any other service or product that is a barrier to becoming self-sufficient. The opportunities are endless.

This money is seen as allowing these visions become a reality; taking personal transformation to the next step. Currently, funds to move to these “next steps” are very difficult to find in the greater San Antonio area. Your contribution allows us to provide a springboard for people to improve their life, whether it’s to provide added stability for a family, to allow someone to do for a living what they love to do, or possibly help move someone from below the poverty line into a middle-class lifestyle.
