EMPOWERING RESIDENTS

At the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA), we commit numerous resources to empower residents to achieve their educational goals.

Residents share their dreams.

We help them develop a plan to achieve their personal goals.
And we watch them succeed and accomplish what sometimes they thought would be impossible.

By eliminating financial barriers and connecting residents to the resources they need, we watch dreams become reality.

Join SAHA in supporting EIF during Education Celebration Month.

Throughout August, we will supply youth with back-to-school supplies, send off college students with a scholarship and free laptop, and celebrate students who are standing out among their peers.

We want you to be a part of their story — and their success.

Education Celebration Month

Showered with confetti and praised for their academic success, 20 college-bound students across San Antonio received a scholarship up to $1,500 and a free laptop to begin their higher education journey.
