2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Endeavors. Launched in 1969, we have grown dramatically, expanding in scope,
reach, and geography. Endeavors serves as a model within an evolving behavioral health and social service
landscape. Endeavors is a private non-profit agency founded by inner-city churches as Urban Ministries in 1969 to
meet the most pressing needs of the San Antonio community.
Today, Endeavors provides an array of programs and services in support of children, families, Veterans and those
struggling with mental illness and other significant disabilities. Endeavors has a number of services and works in
collaboration with area agencies and organizations to meet the full range of needs of the local community.
We believe that every Endeavors story is worth sharing.
Read, watch and listen to the hundreds of stories of recovery that tell our shared history and even add your own!
Endeavors celebrates it’s 50th Anniversary with 5 decades worth of alumni, staff, Board, and supporters from across the
nation. We are grateful to everyone who has made the last 50 years possible. Here are some of this years highlights.
