Here are some programs that Shawnee Trail actively participates in to serve the local community and show the love of Christ.

Arms of Hope

Arms of Hope is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Christian care organization that assists children and single-mother families in need. Arms of Hope’s facilities include Medina Children’s Home (60 miles northwest of San Antonio) and Boles Children’s Home (40 miles northeast of Dallas). The facilities have over 135 years combined experience in comprehensive residential care programs for children. Arms of Hope also reaches disadvantaged children in their own neighborhoods in various communities with its Outreach Ministry programs.

Through its Residential Child Care, Together, College and Career, Right Start, and Outreach Ministry programs, Arms of Hope is committed to providing a safe haven and Christian environment for children and single-mother families by helping them avoid homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect and by leading them to lives of sustaining and productive citizenship. Their residents attend public school, nearby universities or trade schools and participate in school, church and campus activities.

Arms of Hope does not receive federal or state grants. Instead, Arms of Hope relies on caring individuals, businesses, civic groups, churches and foundations for funding and volunteer support.
