meet our staff

The Blue Cares team is made up of volunteers from our community and from the men and women of the San Antonio Police Officers’ Association. We are also lucky to have two full-time professionals on board who manage our programs year-round and ensure that they are effectively managed so that we help as many children and families in need as possible.

Adriana has been with SAPOA for 8 years, starting as the Assistant Director in support of Community Outreach and moving up to lead the team over the last year.

Volunteers are the most important assets to any non-profit program. We appreciate any help that is offered.

The goal of Project CJ is to ensure children have enough healthy snacks and food options during their time away from school and on weekends.
