Casa Helotes is a senior citizen activity center serving the City of Helotes, northwest San Antonio and surrounding communities. Casa Helotes is classified as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with three purposes:
Casa Helotes was founded in 1986 by a small group of women in Sigma Pi chapter of ESA International, who previously prepared and delivered meals to seniors on their own. As the demands for meals increased, the group envisioned having a central location to prepare and serve hot meals to senior citizens as well as providing a safe gathering place to allow senior citizens the opportunity to stay engaged in their community. Initially, the group obtained funding for the current facility and equipment through AACOG, private donations and fundraising activities.
To this day, Casa Helotes remains active in fulfilling its original goals. Currently, the center serves an average of 200 congregate meals weekly and offers a variety of educational seminars and fitness activities for all seniors to enjoy.
