Blue Cares Executive Director Resigns to Pursue Public Office Position

Dr. Gonzalez led community outreach efforts for SAPOA’s nonprofit arm for over 2 years


SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – JAN. 05, 2024 – After almost three years representing the San Antonio Police Officers’ Association’s nonprofit arm, Blue Cares, Dr. Amanda Gonzalez will officially be parting ways with the organization to pursue political endeavors.

“It has been an honor to serve alongside the brave men and women who not only protect our city but step up when families are in dire need of resources. I am grateful for the opportunity to have served in this capacity and look forward to continuing to serve my community through public office,” said Dr. Amanda Gonzalez.

Through her role as Executive Director, Dr. Gonzalez helped lead a rebranding campaign which expanded Blue Cares’ community outreach initiatives including, We Care Kits, a new program which collects and donates personal care and hygiene products for San Antonio police officers to distribute to citizens in need. In 2023, the program expanded its efforts by partnering with local school districts to serve high school students with little to no access to such products. We Cares Kits include everyday hygiene items such as deodorant, shampoo, tooth brushes, toothpaste, lotion, etc.

“Over the years, Blue Cares has witnessed incredible growth under the leadership of Dr. Gonzalez. We are grateful for her contribution to the organization and wish her the very best in her pursuit for public office,” said Danny Diaz, President of the San Antonio Police Officers’ Association.

In the coming weeks, Blue Cares will be actively seeking a new Executive Director to fill the position and further the organization’s mission to assist low-income families and at-risk youth in Bexar County.
