In 2006, Acacia Medical Mission was established as a nonprofit committed to providing free faith-based healthcare services and wellness education to those in need residing in Comal and neighboring counties. Since the clinic opened in 2011, Acacia continues to be a resource for those who don't have access to affordable healthcare. Our providers conduct outreach in the community to treat the unhoused through programs such as Wellness On Wheels (WOW clinic), First Footing, and HOME Team. AMM partners and is supported by United Way of Comal County, funders, local churches, individual residents, nurse practitioners, physicians, and other volunteers.
Chery moved to Texas in 1981 and worked for Spalten-Mueller, Inc. for 31 years until she “retired”in 2012. She started volunteering with Acacia Medical Mission in 2011 when the doors opened, then became a paid employee in 2012. She is an EMT-B, and feels privileged to work at Acacia Medical Mission and get to help and love on people who have no insurance and are so grateful for our clinic.
Bio to come.
Rachel has always had a niche of being able to form a connection with the people around her with a commitment to helping those in need, whenever possible. Her and her husband decided to plant their roots in Bulverde with their 2 handsome young boys right as COVID hit in 2020, after being born and raised in SETX for the previous 35 years. Rachel knows firsthand what it's like to feel "alone" when you need help the most but can't afford the help you need. She is a firm believer in everything happens for a reason and embodies "while we may not be your permanent home, we will welcome you with open arms to help you get there."
