Greater Randolph Area Services Program
The Greater Randolph Area Services Program, Inc. (GRASP), a 501(c)(3) human service organization established in 1983, helps economically disadvantaged individuals, families, and children. GRASP programs offer emergency assistance to those experiencing a household crisis and who live in areas of Bexar or Guadalupe Counties in communities where access to help is limited. Qualified households receive emergency assistance for rent, utilities, food, and medicine.
The GRASP Thrift Shop provides clothing and housewares to needy families who experience a catastrophe such as a fire, flood, or other loss. The agency provides emergency financial assistance, a food pantry, senior transportation, daily activities, and nutritious meals at the GRASP Community Center in Converse. GRASP built and has operated this facility since 1990.
The GRASP Community Center is a convenient facility for adult and youth programs, receptions, meetings, and other activities. Individuals, businesses, civic organizations, and government agencies provide support for GRASP. GRASP is funded by the United Way of Bexar County and San Antonio, Alamo Area Council of Governments, Guadalupe County United Way, Texas Department of Transportation, City of San Antonio, Bexar County, the State of Texas, and others
