Refugees and immigrants have lived in San Antonio for several decades, mainly in the medical center area. Over time, little and sporadic assistance has been offered to help them succeed.  New Hope Connection aims to provide innovative,  consistent, and sustainable means to help these residents feel at home in the San Antonio community so they can see their hopes, dreams, and aspirations reached in dramatic ways.
