New Beginnings Children’s Home

Our member spotlight this month is New Beginnings Children’s Home (NBCH). It is a residential facility for children ages 5 to 17. I sat down with Nicole Rodriguez, the director of NBCH, for a Chamber Chat. You can watch the full video here.

NBCH is a safe and therapeutic living environment for abused, neglected, and displaced children. NBCH was created in response to San Antonio’s rising child abuse problem. The great thing about their program is the ability to focus on each individual child and build relationships that leave a lasting impression. They are staffed 24/7 365 days of the year. They are looking to build a transition home on their property in order to continue support through college and decrease the recidivism rates even further. Funding is always needed, not just to meet their growing demands, as costs of goods continue to rise but to go above and beyond, making their space feel more like home.

Castroville Area Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce that we have started a collection drive to help support New Beginnings Children’s Home. If you have any household items; paper towels, toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, cleaning supplies, etc., please drop them off at our office and we will get them over to NBCH. Better yet, call and schedule a time for you to go out there and visit with the kids. Become a mentor and build a bond that will last a lifetime.

For more information check out their website

or call them at 210.422.8374.

They are located at 400 County Road 3821 San Antonio, TX 78253.

You can email Nicole at

They are also in need of a storage shed. The slab is already there.

Rich History

Castroville is rich in history dating back to 1844 when the town was founded by Henri Castro. The first European emigrant settlers in this area were mostly Catholic farmers from Alsace, a region of France, brought over to fulfill Castro’s contract to colonize vacant Texas Land. Calling themselves Alsatians, they were mostly of German decent speaking a dialect of German and French. Visit our HISTORY & HERITAGE page to learn more.
