The Arc of San Antonio was founded in 1954 by parents who wanted to create a network of support and services for their children with special needs. Throughout our history, The Arc has responded to the changing needs in our community by developing programs and partnerships that address the most critical issues facing people living with disabilities. Today, The Arc offers one of the largest continuum of services for children and adults with a broad range of developmental abilities.
Community First Health Plans (CFHP) was established in 1995, by the University Health System, specifically to begin providing health care coverage to the citizens of Bexar and the surrounding seven counties. As the only locally owned and managed, non-profit health plan in the area, our commitment to our members is to provide great health care benefits backed by outstanding service, delivered by people who live right here in South Texas. Our goal is to make San Antonio have more successful health outcomes by putting the community first.
In 2008 the Believe It Foundation was formed by Andrew McAllister for the purpose of promoting the inclusion of physically challenged children. Far too often these children are needlessly excluded from opportunities to participate with others when a little extra effort is all that is necessary.
The Foundation has continued to work with Kinetic Kids, a San Antonio non-profit organization that provides safe, healthy recreation opportunities for children with physical and mental differences.
