Warrior & Family Support Center (WFSC)
A dream turned into reality on Dec 1st as the keys were presented to the Warrior & Family Support Center program director for the new 12,000 square foot Warrior and Family Support Center at Fort Sam Houston.
For the last five years, the WFSC was located in a 1,200 square foot room in the Powless Guest House conference room with one desk shared by employees in a very crowded room filled with wounded warriors and Family members.
Today the dream of a new home for the WFSC became a reality thanks to more than 5,500 financial contributors, 75 companies that provided discounted foods or services in the construction and furnishing of the building, the hundreds of dedicated volunteers who have served on behalf of the wounded warriors and their Families and the military staff who recognized the need and support the mission to completion.
The new facility will be more than just a place to watch TV. The rooms exude warmth, friendliness and comfort. The WFSC has always provided that environment for Warriors and their Families but now the new "home" has much more adequate space and capabilities to carry out that mission.
The 4.5 million privately funded building offers big screen TVs in virtually every imaginable spot, to include the back patio over the two-way fireplace, plus a library of DVDs. A computer lab has over 20 computers to check e-mail or use the internet. The theater and game room has an assortment of XBOX games and many craft activities. Home baked refreshments are plentiful in the dream kitchen, where the coffee pot is always on. The great room offers several seating areas with leather sofas to sink into and just relax or read some of the many books and magazines.
The large open front and back porch areas are equipped for cookouts and the butterfly garden provides tranquil personal space on its pathways or by the peaceful flowing waterfall and pond.
