Center for the Intrepid
Center for the Intrepid sets the Standard
for Excellence in Rehabilitative Care
for our Wounded Warriors
The 65,000 square foot Center for the Intrepid, opened in January 2007 in San Antonio, Texas.
It provides state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities for military personnel who have been catastrophically disabled in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and veterans severely injured in other operations and in the normal performance of their duties.
The Center includes state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation equipment and extensive indoor and outdoor facilities, all of which serve the rehabilitation needs of patients and their care givers.
The Center for the Intrepid is a $50-million- dollar facility, built entirely through the generosity of more than 600,000 Americans, who donated funds for its construction through the Intrepid Fallen Heroes fund.
The Center is co-located with two 21-room Fisher Houses, "comfort homes" that house the families of patients in a home-like environment at low or no cost, so the families can be close to their loved one and participate in his or her recovery.
Read the amazing story behind Fisher Houses and their benefactors.
What began as the dream of a Navy Admiral's wife, Mrs. Pauline Trost, has now provided millions of dollars worth of free or low-cost housing to families of injured service members, through the generosity of Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher and thousands of Americans just like you.
