Counseling Spiritual Development

The St. Henry de Osso Family Project, a ministry of the Teresian Sisters in Southwest Texas, is dedicated to empowering families through a dynamic network of volunteer and community resources. An outgrowth of a family literacy program begun in Uvalde in 1993, the project has expanded to meet a far broader range of needs. 


To unleash the power inherent in each family by enlarging the scope of  opportunities for formation and education.

The St. Henry de Osso Family Project offers a variety of services to the Uvalde, Camp Wood, Bracketville, Del Rio and Eagle Pass areas, including:

Family Tutoring:
Volunteers are recruited to provide tutoring in the home, with the parents, to 1st and 2nd grade students at risk. Parents are an integral part of the tutoring process, so that it can then be continued after the tutors have finished their 12-week sessions.   See Tutor Appreciation Night

Empowering Parents:
Parent Empowerment classes are offered for 4 consecutive weeks, in both English and Spanish, twice a year. Trained facilitators present essential skills in effective parenting. Counseling services are also available.
See report in News section:
Parent Empowerment

Family Communication:
AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers work with families with preteens and teens, in order to build communication between family members, and enabling youth to improve their study skills and offer service to the community.

Spiritual Growth: 
Through family visitation, outreach workers share prayer in the homes, and encourage families to support one another through group sharing. Retreats and special celebrations are offered to help families grow stronger in their faith.
