Thank you Harriet!

Harriet Marmon Helmle is not new to starting amazing things in Alamo City. When Harriet visited her niece, Gayle Munns, in Seattle in 2016, having coffee at Starbucks (of course), she heard about an organization called Social Venture Partners, which combines philanthropy and consulting and that it was transforming nonprofits there . She knew the model would work in San Antonio.
