Greater Randolph Area Services Program Inc. was founded in 1983 by local businessmen in Universal City who envisioned a need to serve families with help for food, rent, and utility assistance. As the agency grew, a partnership with United Way of San Antonio & Bexar County was formed and later the relationship expanded to include Guadalupe United Way, Bexar County CDBG, City of San Antonio other many others.
In 2000, the agency hired Jay Higginson as its youngest President & CEO in its history who has grown the agency budget from $200,000 to over $1,300,000 serving more than 9,000 individuals each year with a staff of 11 employees and over 100 volunteers who help make a difference in the lives of many local residents.
Currently, GRASP serves over 2,500 families each year in our local Randolph area neighborhoods. Each month over 10,000 pounds of food are provided monthly feeding hunger. Last year we served 13,567 congregate meals to seniors. We have provided over $100,000 in rental assistance saving families from eviction.
With the support of the Bexar County Development Block Grant (CDBG), Meals on Wheels San Antonio is able to provide more meals to our community! If you are in need of meals and meet the eligibility criteria, please contact MOW to start the application process.
