Spurs and Ashley deliver Mission Reach

Last winter caused flooding that damaged the Mission Reach Wellness and Counseling Center in San Antonio. The impact left many Southside families without the center’s facilities and services.

The San Antonio Spurs partnered with Ashley to reestablish all Jewish family ministry at the Mission Reach Wellness and Counseling Center in south San Antonio. Ashley Furniture and Spurs Give put the finishing touches on the space this week.

“The positive impact JFS has had on communities in San Antonio is remarkable, especially after two challenging years in a pandemic,” said Kara Allen, Spurs Sports & Entertainment’s chief impact officer. “We are proud to call Ashley a partner and know that they will continue to invest in the spiritual well-being of others.”

The Jewish Family Service has provided mental health, counseling, therapy, and elder services since 1973, supporting over 10,000 families throughout the Alamo City.

“We are so grateful for our partnership with the San Antonio Spurs, which gives us the opportunity to serve those in the San Antonio area who use Jewish family services for mental health and family counseling,” said Lisa Fanaro, executive vice president of business Strategy and experience for Ashley. “At Ashley, we believe that health encompasses both your mental and physical state, so we’re excited to support an organization that helps the community stay healthy, happy and together.”

Spurs players Jock Landale and Tre Jones provided Spurs yoga mats and met with children and families who came out to check out the newly decorated space. Landale and Jones attended a yoga session with the kids before handing out Spurs swag bags.

In addition to setting up the Mission Reach Wellness and Counseling Center, Ashley is providing the center with tickets to Spurs’ final home game on April 9th.
