The USAA Foundation, Inc. helps Semper Fi Fund offer Hope for Caregivers
The Semper Fi Fund is deeply grateful for the support from The USAA Foundation, Inc. which allows us to equip caregivers with the skills and tools they need to better care for their loved ones. Through the generosity of The USAA Foundation, Inc., we are offering retreats in San Antonio, Texas; and Tampa, Florida. By gathering those whose loved ones have similar injuries, we are further reducing the challenges and stress experienced by those who play such a critical role in the recovery process.
The Caregiver Support Program is crucial for spouses, parents, siblings, extended family members and close friends who drop everything to care for a combat wounded, critically ill or catastrophically injured service member.
"Most organizations provide for wounded service members only what their needs are in the moment...Semper Fi Fund looks deeper and holistically. They realize the importance of the family unit and provide for the emotional well-being of the caregiver as well."
- Andrew and Tori
The Semper Fi Fund has been caring for our nation's caregivers since 2005. Our Caregiver Retreat, a component of our Caregiver Support Program, is a weekend of recovery, art therapy, relaxation, rejuvenation and education. During these retreats, participants learn a variety of skills from trained professionals and leave with a set of tools they can implement in their everyday lives to help relieve stress, manage household finances, assist their service member in navigating the VA system, and better cope in their caregiver roles. We are so thankful for support from The USAA Foundation, Inc. which allows us to be a blessing for our service members and their families.
