A Place to Call Home

Walsh Family Village

Since opening in 2008, the village has made a lasting impact on those who've used its services. We're working every day to continue helping patients in the local community.

This is your chance to support the mission of compassion, hospitality and stewardship. Your gifts will:

  • Further the mission by ensuring everyone has access to world-class health care, regardless of ability to pay.
  • Support the Gospel values of compassion and hospitality by providing family-friendly environments.
  • Extend the healing ministry of caring for the whole person: body, mind and spirit to patients and families during times of need.

Emotional Medicine: Clint's Story

After an injury, Clint Dreyer was left with a traumatic brain injury that required months of rehabilitation and outpatient therapy. Living over an hour away, Clint relied on the services provided at the Walsh Family Village for his living accommodations. However, he soon discovered the village to be much more than a place to call home; it was his emotional medicine. This is Clint's story.

Support the Village Today
