Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Antonio is here when you need a hand-up!

Financial challenges can leave our Jewish friends and neighbors despondent. They need not suffer alone. Economically vulnerable due to job loss, medical problems, Covid-19, temporary setbacks? As Pesach approaches, Hebrew Free Loan Association of San Antonio (HFLA-SA) is here to lend a hand up.

Our traditional sources enjoin us to treat those facing economic hardship with dignity:

“If you lend money to My people, even to the poor among you , do not act toward them as a creditor; you shall not charge them interest.” – Exodus 22:24 (Parasha Mishpatim)
“You shall not lend him your money at interest, or give him your food for profit.” – Leviticus 25:37 (Parasha Vayikra)

HFLA-SA was established in 1924, exclusively to serve as the Jewish community's

agency that provides us a path to follow this mandate.

Respect, Compassion, Confidentiality - core values that guide our work with potential borrowers.

Our goal - Empowering neighbors & friends to become economically self-sufficient and financially secure.

While economic conditions have changed over the past 97 years; HFLA-SA’s mission has not. Our volunteer Board remains committed to extending a financial hand-up to all local Jewish people who turn to us. Together, we continue building a stronger community . . . one interest-free loan at a time!

HFLA-SA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible donations support interest-free loans as well as the agency’s lean operations.

HFLA-SA serves Jewish residents of 15 counties surrounding San Antonio. If you need financial assistance, or to support our work, please call 210.736.4352 or visit us at
