South Texas Veterans Health Care System (STVHCS)
STVHCS To Get Fisher House
The South Texas Veterans Health Care System has been selected by the Fisher Foundation to receive a Fisher House in support of our inpatient programs and our Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center.
A Fisher House is a home-away-from-home for the families of seriously ill or injured patients receiving treatment at the South Texas Veterans Health Care System. Fisher House provides a caring, supportive environment during life’s most difficult and lonely times; it’s a family when it’s needed most. Families who meet the eligibility criteria and are accepted as guests stay without cost. Through the generosity of community donors we will be able to provide lodging, food, and services at no costs to the families.
Fisher House, Inc., is a non-profit charitable corporation that manages and operates the Fisher Houses for the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Funding comes from corporate, group, and individual donors. Contributions are fully tax deductible. Donations of cash, goods, services, and volunteer time are always needed to ensure the services remain free of charge for guests. Please remember the San Antonio VA Fisher House when you want to give of your time or your treasures. If you wish to make a donation, you can do so on the Fisher House website, under their "Donate Online" link here: https://www.givedirect.org/give/givefrm.asp?CID=780. To ensure the donation benefits our Fisher House, please be sure and select "Fisher House at South Texas VA - Audie Murphy" in the program area drop down box on the right side of the screen.
