Daughters of Charity Services hosts Catholic Daughters Court of Our Lady of Holy Trinity for Dr. Seus’ birthday
Daughters of Charity Services of San Antonio hosted Catholic Daughters of America Court of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity on Feb. 23 to celebrate “Read Across America” with reading of books with three and four year olds.
In addition to reading, the Ladies of the Court donated books and the Court gave a donation of $500 to purchase books for the lending library. Books will be purchased for both center run by Daughters of Charity Services, DePaul Children’s Center and DePaul-Wesley Children’s Center, which serves 350 children annually.
“We are very grateful for the vote of confidence from The Catholic Daughters represented by this gift,” said Mike Bennett, president/CEO.
Daughters of Charity Services has conducted an early childhood education program on the south side since 1984. The primary goal of the early child education program is to enhance the development and school readiness of young children and assist families to provide an environment that supports their child’s development and school readiness.
Daughters of Charity Services offers care to a low-income population including primary medical care, dental care, wellness, health education, early childhood education, and social services to 12,000 low-income families each year.
The mission of the organization states: faithful to the Vincentian tradition, Daughters of Charity Services of San Antonio will establish and maintain neighborhood-based programs to increase accessibility to primary health care and human services on the part of the poor. These programs will have a strong holistic orientation and consider participation and empowerment as an integral dimension of the delivery service. While services will be rendered with preferential option for the poor, it is not to the exclusion of others.
A United Way agency, Daughters of Charity Services provides health and social services on an ability-to-pay basis for low-income families. Additional information about Daughters of Charity Services’ programs, can be found by calling (210) 334-2300 or at www.dcssa.org.
