|Preserving our Culture and Heritage|
Two weeks ago, we opened the Bexar County Heritage Center which is free and open to the public. The Center is located in the Courthouse to educate the public on the County’s history and the role of County government. The interactive exhibits focus on our history and major projects that the County had taken on and completed in the modern era. Protecting our Children
Since 2017, we have seen a substantial drop in cases filed and in the number of children being removed from their homes and entering foster care. The number of children being removed from their homes or entering foster care has dropped by 20 percent.
Thank you to Bexar County Child Welfare Board, District Court Judge Peter Sakai, District Court Judge Monique Diaz, and District Attorney Joe Gonzales for you combined efforts in protecting our children and working to empower families.
In order to continue this trend, the Commissioners Court included funding in the amount of $1 million for new program will provide additional support services aimed at keeping families from re-entering the CPS system.
