The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas is the sole provider of ongoing, youth-focused grief support for families in San Antonio and South Texas. Most services are provided free of charge. Programs at the Center are designed to help children and families process the psychological and emotional challenges of death and loss in a safe and nurturing environment. CBCST helped over 1500 children and adult caregivers in 2015.

Parking Info: Free parking is available at the corner of Houston & Flores in the two Frost Bank employee parking lots after 6pm. There are also several paid parking options. There is a garage in the Rand building (accessible on Soledad), metered parking on the street, and a number of pay lots. Geekdom staff recommends that you avoid the lot at Houston and Soledad as they are aggressive in their towing practices.

Food/Drink: Bring your own, or we can order something as a group if there is interest.

Entrance to the Event Centre is on Soledad (NOT the main Geekdom entrance). There is a sign hanging above the door, about halfway down the block south of Houston St.
