Who We Are

The Alamo Caregiver Support Coalition is a sub-committee (Family Caregiver Support) of the Bexar Senior Advisory Committee which advises the Bexar Area Agency on Aging in matters related to seniors and persons with disabilities. The coalition was formed in 2009 and exists to provide support, resources, and training for family caregivers in Bexar County. Its membership consists of non-profits, for-profits, governmental agencies, and individuals with a shared passion to support family caregivers in their efforts to care for their loved ones. The coalition meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. To request Membership Application and for meeting location, please contact us at
