ReadyKidSA: For Military Families - Family & Home Life Support

Family & Home Life Support

Mission United

With a $4 million grant from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, United Way of San Antonio & Bexar County (UWSA), on behalf of the ReadyKidSA Coalition and others, is the lead for the San Antonio Military/Veterans Prevention Programs Coalition (SAMVPPC). The SAMVPPC will develop a Resource Directory for Military/Veteran Families that is user-friendly, frequently updated, available in print, online, and will develop a phone app with local partners.


The focus of this grant is to increase Military and Veteran families’ protective factors and reduce the risk of child abuse and/or neglect by stitching together the vast resources available across multiple sectors so that families can easily access the resources they might need.  Research has shown that six protective factors are closely linked to a happy and resilient family:


  • Family functioning/resiliency
  • Social support;
  • Knowledge of parenting/child development;
  • Concrete support;
  • Nurturing and attachment
  • Children’s social & emotional development.

Eligible Participants: Active duty military member, veteran, national guardsman, reservists and/or retirees who have children 0-17 years of age, regardless of income or discharge type.
