The Housing Authority of Bexar County's (HABC's) mission is:
"To provide affordable housing that is in decent and safe condition, to be stewards of Public Funds and Trust, and to serve all customers with respect and compassion. To guide our participants to become economically self-sufficient, and improving the livelihood of citizens who are in need within the City of San Antonio and the County of Bexar."
HABC was created on September 3, 1975, by the Bexar County Commissioners Court. A Board of Commissioners was appointed to oversee policies and procedures administered by the Executive Director. HABC's primary objective is to provide rental assistance to income-eligible households and to provide improved living conditions in Bexar County.
