Her role at the children’s shelter is to assign individuals who have the same passion as her to volunteer and play with the children but most of all to make them feel safe and cared for. Mrs. Sanchez took time out of her busy schedule to meet with us on October 6, 2015 at The San Antonio Children’s Shelter to share information about the children shelter that gives us more information about the care, mission, and goals about the children’s shelter. Mrs. Sanchez worked at the children’s museum before she worked at the children’s shelter until a close friend of hers asked her to go with her and work at the shelter.

Sixteen years later Mrs. Sanchez has been a volunteer manager at the children’s shelter and has had a passion for the children since day one. She expresses how much the children and the shelter have given her so much enthusiasm to continue to help and work not only for the children but for the community as well.
