We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing NEW clothing and accessories for referred or at risk teens. Referred teens choose complete outfits, new socks, underwear, bras, toiletries, shoes, and seasonal items, when available.
Our Mission is to provide a safe and nurturing shopping experience. Our target age group is 12-21 years of age; to include teens in foster care, teens that have aged out of foster care, homeless teens, or otherwise referred or at risk teens teens. We also project to serve over 5,000 teens in 2020, providing them complete outfits and accessories FOR FREE.
Youth in need must be referred by an informed adult, someone who is familiar with the situation. Personnel representing agencies, schools, group homes, and regional treatment centers are welcome to refer a teen to San Antonio Threads. The referral form is on this website. We need clothing and shoe size information to ensure a successful shopping experience for each and every youth.
We are by appointment only, Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9-5, with some later days. We have a small group of volunteers that provide a VIP experience for our teens.
Do you have a program or skill that you would like to share with our teens? Programs are scheduled for approximately 15 minutes during the teens’ shopping experience. Do you want to volunteer to work at SA Threads or want to apply for an internship at SA Threads? Fill out the contact form below and we will be in touch shortly. Thank You.
