‘It made me feel really good knowing that I helped someone I didn’t even know when they really needed it’ Galina, Kinder Ranch Elementary


From Our CEO/Executive Director Fisher House, Inc. continues to provide great goods and services to military families staying at all three Fisher House locations in San Antonio. Those services such as; food for families, replacement furniture, some utilities, and much more would not be possible without the help of each donor and volunteer. Thank you so much to each donor and volunteer who makes our mission at Fisher House, Inc. possible. The staff at Fisher House, Inc. is busy meeting the needs of the Fisher Houses. For example, at the Lackland Fisher Houses we have ordered over 28K in new furniture. We have also ordered new carpet and wood floors for the dining room and stairs in House II. In addition, new linen was provided as well as 211 meals for military families. Some of the improvements are mentioned on page six of this newsletter. At the Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) Fisher House, we provided new washers/dryers and wishlist items. Funding was provided for a kitchen renovation, new double ovens, microwaves, stove tops and dishwashers. The VA Fisher House received wishlist items and 334 meals for military families.

Please take the time to visit page-three of this newsletter mentioning Chief Master Sergeant (CMSgt) Wayne Smith (USAF Retired) who served on our Board of Directors for almost 24 years. His experience, leadership and guidance were instrumental in the growth of Fisher House, Inc. As of July 1, 2022 Chief Smith is retiring from our Board of Directors. We wish the Chief and his family a heartfelt farewell. Fisher house, Inc. has several very important events coming up over the next year so please mark your calendar. On September 16, 2022, we will celebrate Founders Day just outside of the BAMC Fisher House. This annual barbeque event celebrates our Fisher House founder Zachary Fisher’s Birthday. We will have some amazing food, birthday cake, entertainment, and some Helping Hands awards to pass out. The second date to keep in mind is the 16th Annual Golf Tournament on November 7, 2022. The Golf Tournament will be at the Fair Oaks Ranch Golf and Country Club in Fair Oaks Ranch.

Dwayne F. Hopkins CEO/Executive Director

As mentioned before, we have some amazing work going on at the Fisher Houses. However, we know this would not be possible without our dedicated donors. Thank you for every penny and dollar sent to us to make our mission possible. We are a small non-profit organization with great hearts as we understand how each donation is impactful to our daily mission. Fisher House, Inc. will remain focused on providing excellent service to our military families. Our goal is to continue to provide services to the military family at no cost.

❤ THANK YOU CMSgt (Ret) Wayne Smith

for serving 23+ years on the Fisher House Inc. Board of Directors CMSgt Wayne Smith (Ret) first started with Fisher House, Inc. as a Board of Director’s member in 1998. Chief Smith already had vast knowledge in leadership and management after serving 34 years in the US Air Force. During the early years of Fisher House, Inc, he was a vital member in several positions from strategic planning, management procedures and governance. At the time of the Iraqi and Afghan conflicts, he was instrumental in providing a homeaway-from-home at the Lackland Fisher Houses. Chief Smith served as Secretary, on executive and marketing/development committees and even master of ceremonies while on our board. We wish Chief Smith all the best and thank him for many years of dedicated and passionate service to Fisher House, Inc. and its mission. CMSgt (Ret) Wayne Smith

CROCHETING WITH LOVE ... one blanket at a time Irene Bowman, a native from New York City, NY, moved to the San Antonio area in 2013. Before moving to Texas, Irene took care of children for 35 years. Her nurturing spirit was felt by the parents as well as the children. Irene has been crocheting for close to fifty years. The hobby started out as crocheting baby blankets and has expanded to mother’s blankets, couples’ blankets, grandma blankets (once they become grandparents) and “just because you are a friend” blanket. Blankets made with love by Irene Bowman

Ms. Irene Bowman

In the past few years, she has included blankets and throws for hospice care, seniors, shelters and now the VA Fisher House in San Antonio. Irene receives donated yarn from friends and uses gift cards received as gifts to purchase yarn. She says that crocheting is “very therapeutic” for her. Almost every time Irene presents a blanket the reaction she receives is one of awe and wonder because the colors match the recipients décor and she randomly selects the color without coordinating with them, it is indeed a gift that she has.

❤ These past few years have not been easy

for the volunteers at the Fisher Houses. From reduced occupancy and even competely closed houses, volunteering during COVID was a challenge for many loyal volunteers. The regular dinners for the guests were cancelled and volunteers were not able to return for a long time. This was the same at the South Texas Veterans VA Fisher House. In May of 2020, this Fisher House closed their doors for guests completely for almost a year.

❤ from the South Texas Veterans VA Fisher House VOLUNTEERS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

This did not stop volunteers Mark Ochoa and Bill England. Their mission continued, even during the pandemic. The VA Fisher House in San Antonio opened the doors for frontline workers, who were able to use the guest rooms in between work shifts at the VA hospital. The rooms had to be converted and prepared for this. Bill and Mark were part of the team that helped break down the beds in the rooms, sanitize the house and prepare for this huge task. During this time, Mark and Bill continued to volunteer. They transported patients to and from doctor visits, and delivered donated lunches to the VA hospital staff. When asked why they continued to volunteer during these challenging times, Bill responded: “It’s all about the Fisher House mission and helping the people that served.” These days you can find Mark and Bill around the house, several days a week, keeping the place looking beautiful and transporting guests in the Fisher House van.

Mark is a Vietnam Veteran who served in the US Airforce as a C130 Loadmaster from 1969-1975. Mark is a member of the American Legion Riders, Post 309 in San Antonio. While attending a Veterans Day event with the American Legion Riders, he learned about the Fisher House and it’s mission from former House Manager Erik Zielinski. This is when he decided to become a volunteer. Bill enlisted in the US Army as a Cavalry Scout in 1983 and retired 20 years later in 2003. He joined the Fisher House volunteer program in 2019 and you can find him in the house or driving guests to and from appointments every week. Their dedication and caring hearts for the Fisher House mission is essential.... “Volunteers are not paid - not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless” From left to right: Bill England and Mark Ochoa Jr.

FROM THE LACKLAND FISHER HOUSE Celebrating 30 years of service Story by Lackland Fisher House Staff

The Lackland Fisher Houses recent-

ly celebrated their 30th year anniversary of operations at JBSA-Lackland AFB with an open house. This event also signified a much welcomed return to full operations supporting The New Wilford Hall. The Lackland Houses invited base leadership, mission partners, community partners, and proud supporters stop by and see the first Air Force Fisher House as we reached our 30 year milestone, and find out a little bit more about what we do for our military families. Fisher House, Inc. our community support partner provided a free lunch for all guests. The Lackland Fisher House has so many exciting things happening within our homes. Covid-19 has finally reached a low and is allowing for full occupancy. It has been such a treat hearing the guests enjoying social time with each other and the sound of children enjoying time in the playroom. During our quiet times, the Lackland Fisher House has been updating some of our houses to give them a little fresh touch. We have added new wooden hangers, new linen, décor, portable refrigerators and smart televisions.

These small changes help our guests to more of those home comforts while staying at the Lackland Fisher House. Another big change on our horizon is a brand new mural in our children’s playroom area. During Winter Storm Uri in February of 2021, Lackland Fisher House III was flooded causing damage to our wall mural in the children’s area. We were recently connected with an amazing Lackland Child and Youth program artist who is going to create a new mural for our younger guests to enjoy. We are all so excited to see the completed project. As our guests comfort is always in the forefront, the Lackland Fisher House is looking forward to even more upcoming projects in the future, like a complete renovation of our Fisher House II. This renovation will include fresh new paint throughout the house, all new furniture, upgraded flooring and fresh new decor. House I will also be getting new flooring for our guests to enjoy.

Lackland Fisher House Manager Philip Harralson

As we have crossed the COVID threshold, our volunteer program is slowly building its way back up with helping hands for projects around the houses and dinners being provided for guests to enjoy. The Lackland Fisher House is always grateful for anyone wanting to get involved and volunteer either as an individual or a group. We love to have you involved with projects and activities around the houses. If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer in the Fisher House mission to help military families, please contact the Lackland Fisher House staff at 210-671-6029.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT Kinder Ranch Elementary

Students at Kinder Ranch Elementary in San Antonio, were thinking about

a project for the ‘Month of the Military Child’ this past April. While discussing projects to support military organizations, 4th grade student Galina came up with the idea of organizing a wishlist drive for the Fisher House. She picked the Fisher House, because it’s very close and dear to her, as you can read in her letter above. The help of caring and compassionate supporters from our local community has a positive impact on our mission. These students showed what it means to give back, and together they made it happen. Fisher House Inc. received a generous donation of wishlist items that will greatly benefit the guests at the Fisher Houses.
