USAA helps Semper Fi Fund by offering Hope for Caregivers
The Semper Fi Fund would like to say a heartfelt Thank You to USAA for continuing to support our Caregiver Support Program. With the generosity of donors like USAA, we were able to host more than 430 caregivers at 18 Retreats last year, equipping caregivers with the skills and tools they need to better care for their loved ones. With continued support from USAA, we look forward to offering hope to many more this year.
The Caregiver Support Program is crucial for spouses, parents, siblings, extended family members and close friends who drop everything to care for a post-9/11 combat wounded, critically ill or catastrophically injured service member.
These events are extremely valuable, because they provide caregivers who often neglect themselves to help others much-needed rest and recovery. Retreats also allow for time to connect with other caregivers and trained professionals to gain valuable resources and tools to help them support their service member and family.
The Semper Fi Funds Caregiver Retreat, a component of our Caregiver Support Program, is a weekend of recovery, art therapy, relaxation and rejuvenation. 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 navigate the VA system, and better cope in their caregiver roles.
