In December of 2005 business and civic leader Bill Greehey watched a documentary on San Antonio’s homelessness that aired on a local TV station. Inspired to transform and save the lives of San Antonio’s homeless, Bill Greehey worked closely with Mayor Phil Hardberger and other city leaders such as Councilwoman Patti Radle and former Mayor Ed Garza’s Council to End Homelessness.
In 2006, just one year after Greehey’s initial inspiration, Haven for Hope was officially established as a 501c private organization. 18 months of research around the US and over 200 shelters later, Haven for Hope’s vision was born.
The Capital Campaign and the 15 buildings located on 37 acres west of downtown San Antonio was completed in early 2010. By April of 2010, the very first Members moved onto the Campus.
Currently the Transformational Campus provides housing and programming to over 900 men, women and children. Prospects Courtyard, an area of safe sleeping for the chronic homeless population, sleeps approximately 500 men and women per night.
Haven for Hope will begin construction on Phase II “The Terraces at Haven,” a 150 unit supportive housing complex, during the 3rd quarter of 2011 with expected completion during 2013.
