History of Madonna Center

The agency was founded in 1939 by the Sisters of Divine Providence as the Girls’ Club of San Antonio, and occupied a former residence at 403 Dwyer Avenue.

In 1941, the agency was accepted as a member of the Community Chest, the forerunner to today’s United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. Five “extension units” were set up in 1944 to better serve the membership from several parts of the city. Around the same time groups for women were organized, and when the girls requested co-educational groups, boys were admitted to some of the social clubs. From then on, the Girl’s Club emphasized family membership and had groups for adults as well as for boys and girls of every age.
