The Justice Foundation Continues the Battle to
Overturn Roe v. Wade
2019 marks the 46th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s historic
ruling in the 1973 case of Roe v. Wade, which made abortion legal
and accessible to women throughout the United States. “Just like
slavery and communism, abortion will end, in God's time, and
I believe that will be soon.” – Allan Parker, The Justice Foundation.
ONE: True Healing Through Prayer and Community

Tell Your Story: Taking It To The Streets
"We serve the homeless community in downtown San Antonio every
Saturday night. After my first night of volunteering, I was so excited
and couldn’t wait to do more. I felt a real connection between myself
and our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Being a recovered alcoholic
myself, I could relate to feeling hopeless, left out, and looked down
upon". – Kenny Sides, Executive Director, Taking It To The Streets
