Our Team

Teresa (Tere) Haring is the Founder and Executive Director of Allied. After Allied opened its doors in August 1994, Tere officially became the center’s director in March 1995. Tere had directed a White Rose Center in Washington, D.C. prior to returning to San Antonio with her husband John and their children in 1985. She has been instrumental in the success of Allied Women’s Center and is the person most responsible for saving over 2,000 babies at Allied since it started.

Not one to seek the limelight, Tere nonetheless was given a lifetime achievement award in 2007 by the Majella Foundation. She has received high praise and recognition by different Archbishops and Bishops and is the prime reason why Allied Women’s Center has been the only independent crisis pregnancy center supported by the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

She and her husband, John, have six biological children and nine adopted children, and their home has been a haven for women and children in need over the years. Even with her large family and responsibilities at home, Tere always makes time to help women in crisis. “This is serious. My family has always understood that. If it’s to save a baby, I’ve got to get up and go.”

The Allied Team includes many dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly in a variety of capacities to help support the primary mission… to save the life of the baby from abortion and help the mother and family once they’ve made that life affirming decision
