Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

ADSSA is working hard to break the cycle of poverty and reduce the number of multi-generational families we see visit us for services.

Faithful to the Vincentian tradition, Ascension DePaul Services (formerly Daughters of Charity Services of San Antonio) commits to serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable. Our organization is dedicated to spiritually-centered, holistic care which sustains and improves the health of individuals and communities. We are advocates for a compassionate and just society through our actions and words. All those needing care are welcome, and no one experiences discrimination for any reason.

We look at the social determinants of health to help individuals and families close gaps that help them provide for themselves. Untreated medical, dental, or mental health issues affect all aspects of life. We work to treat those issues. Early education is vital for lifelong success and we provide early education. Educating people on basic life skills, for example financial literacy, job search skills, stress management, and substance abuse are all areas that affect every part of life.

We operate a medical, dental, and counseling facility (La Mision Family Health Care) to meet the physical and emotional needs of the people we serve. We operate two child care centers in South San Antonio that are NAEYC accredited and Texas Rising Star-4 Star centers. One of them being a Head Start/Early Head Start Center. There are very few centers South of downtown San Antonio with these accreditations. Our DePaul Family Center allows ADSSA to meet the emergency needs of families by providing vital social services (food pantry, clothes closet, case management, etc.) and provides various education & exercise classes.

We are providing truly integrated services. Treating people using the social determinants of health is extremely complex and we are putting systems in place to ensure our clients are treated in all areas that affect their lives. Our parenting courses are growing, our medical/dental/behavioral health/social services outreach continues to grow, and our child care centers continue to be accredited and flexible to change with the needs of the community.

Data

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
Policies and processes

  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
