Centro Ambassadors are the smiling faces that welcome visitors and residents to downtown, working tirelessly to make everyone feel like part of the community.

You always have a friend downtown

The Centro Ambassadors are 95 strong, providing maintenance, “pan and broom,” landscaping, and hospitality services in downtown and along the River Walk.

MAINTAINING OUR SPACE

Since March 2020, Centro Ambassadors have increased power-washing potency with virus-killing bleach tablets to clean sidewalks, benches and bus stops, railings, crosswalk buttons, door handles, elevator cabs, scooters, and all other high-touch surfaces. We have also introduced Motorscrubber Storm Disinfecting Wands, an innovative new technology with 3D deep-cleaning, virus-killing capabilities. Check out some highlights of our impact in 2021 below:

HELPING THOSE IN NEED

Centro San Antonio has forged strategic partnerships with DHS, SARAH and Homeless Service Providers to meet clients’ most urgent needs such as food, personal hygiene, and shelter. Our 3 person outreach staff has participated in the planning process for San Antonio’s homeless strategic plan, slated to be implemented this year.

"We were greeted on the River Walk, Alamo, around the mall and the Mercado. Just about everywhere we went there were men and women in the bright yellow shirts and Khaki pants. If we were sitting on a bench or walking looking a bit confused, they ALWAYS stopped and asked us if we needed help. It was so helpful and we felt so secure and safe in your town." -Billie, California

"We visited your wonderful City the first part of June. We were driving a motorhome so you can imagine the difficulty we had navigating through downtown. We talked to a gentleman named Roman. Instead of sending us on our way, he showed us a place close that we could park, escorted us to it, escorted us back to the River Walk entrance and told us a great place to eat while we were there. He was friendly and helpful and informative. We appreciated everything he did for us. We had a great time and our motor home was safe and sound when we returned. Thank Roman for us for representing your fine city. We will return." - Arlene and Bob

"Myself and a group of my girlfriends were down visiting SA. We came up to street level from the River Walk to see if we could find our way to the Market. We ran into Charles Lee and let me tell you how wonderful, polite, and knowledgeable he is. He told us the exact direction and street to take, handed us a map with the exact location marked on it all the while smiling and laughing with us. We even took a picture with Charles Lee. Your company is very lucky to have an employee that cares and truly enjoys his job. Hard to find these days!" -Callie

"We were walking back to our hotel on the street level when we spotted a mess on one street corner. As we got there we spotted one of your Ambassadors sweeping the mess into a pan. We were waiting for the next light to change & stopped to thank him for cleaning that mess up so fast. We chatted with David Ramos for a couple of minutes. He seemed glad that we thanked him, but it was obvious that he was also very proud of the job he does. We wanted to let you know that David is a fine example of the workers that keep that area of San Antonio looking good." -Jerry, Richmond TX

“At the end of the year we are successful in helping over a million AND A HALF people. ”
