During this challenging time, Student Advocacy Centers across the Alamo Colleges District will continue to support our students by providing wraparound support services remotely. We will help with issues that are outside the classroom but can negatively impact stress, focus, and student performance. We will provide online counseling and case management support as well as emergency aid and access to community resources.
PLEASE CONTACT THE ALAMO COLLEGES HELPLINE AT 210-486-1111 8 AM-7 PM M-TH AND FRI 8 AM-5 PM.

The mission of the Advocacy Center is to improve students’ academic performance by providing integrated services and resources to address Mental Health, Emotional and Socioeconomic needs.
In-Person and Remote Services
Case Management Services
This involves a student-centered collaborative effort with community agencies to help you address your needs and goals while building upon your strengths and facilitating access to supportive services and resources.
Counseling, Mental Health, and Recovery Support Services
We believe that academic excellence is achieved when students have a strong mind and a supportive environment. Short-term individual counseling is provided remotely to address emotional or mental health concerns.
Emergency assistance is provided for students through emergency grants to help with unexpected emergencies, such as rent, utilities, and child care needs.
Students who receive emergency aid are strongly encouraged to participate in a financial literacy workshop
