Making Connections is a neighborhood-based initiative aimed at improving the lives of children in San Antonio's Edgwood community. It is a collaborative effort bringing together residents, non-profit organizations, faith-based entities, businesses and government in creative ways to achieve neighborhood transformation and family development.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF) of Baltimore made a ten-year commitment to co-invest in the Neighborhood Transformation / Family Development Initiative with the residents of the West Side and low-income neighborhoods of four other cities in the US.

Since Making Connections is a collaborative endeavor, we welcome your input. If you have West Side news, upcoming events, links to programs, partnerships or resources or any corrections to what we have posted, please let us know:

The new Annie E. Casey Foundation National KIDS COUNT report shows Texas' ranking for overall child well-being improved slightly, but still ranks within the 10 worst states to be a kid.
We know what works to build healthy, strong, and economically secure kids. It's time Texas put kids first by making real investments in their future.
