About

Family violence is the #1 crime and cause of injury to women in the U.S. and is believed to be the most common, yet least reported crime in the country. The San Antonio Battered Women’s Shelter has become a model for the nation by introducing innovative programs designed to help women and children become more self-sufficient, and Christy’s Hope is pleased to help contribute resources to ensure its continued success. With over 51,000 victims served annually, the San Antonio Battered Women and Children’s Shelter is more than just a place for families to come and rest – it is a place where families support each other, and receive the care needed to heal.

The cost for the Shelter to provide their services is approximately $170 per night. The Shelter has never, nor ever will, turn anyone away. Christy’s Hope looks towards the San Antonio community to help the Shelter maintain their open arms policy, and never have to turn a family away due to lack of funding.
Since Christy’s Hope’s 1st tournament, we have raised money for the Shelter to purchase a truck to assist in moving families quickly and safely. Additionally with the funds raised, the San Antonio Battered Women’s Shelter has added a new playground, living quarters, a new dining facility, and a new laundry room. They were also able to furnish the women’s living area of the new Shelter. Recently, they made the decision to provide the women and children with computers and educational software. This past year at our 18th Annual Christy’s Hope Gala & Golf Event, we raised $330,000!! Since its inception 18 years ago, Christy’s Hope charity golf tournament has donated 100% of the proceeds to the shelter, which is now totaling over $2.4 million.

Christy’s Hope is an organization that donates 100% of its proceeds to the Battered Woman and Children’s Center. The charity was founded by Christy Prescott in 1998 as she saw a need in the community. Christine Prescott is the CEO of CTP Inc. and Rennert Travel.
