Williams, Steinert, Mask + Our Community

Community is more than who you’re near physically, it’s about a shared connection between people. 

Williams, Steinert, Mask is dedicated to giving back to our San Antonio community. With every organization we’re involved in, we’ve received new perspectives and the chance to truly change the lives of those in need. Some of our charitable involvement is expanded on below.

Boysville

WSM is honored to donate our efforts to Boysville’s noble cause of helping children in need. 

“Boysville Children’s Home and Shelter, the Home with a Heart, was founded in 1943 as a result of Rev. Don Holiman’s observation of orphaned, homeless and abandoned boys sleeping in San Antonio’s Travis Park. Today, we provide a continuum of trauma-informed services and care for children and caregivers affected by abuse, neglect, and family crisis. Through holistic wrap-around services, we provide each child the opportunity to heal from past trauma while focusing on their future.”
