Terry’s House received $25,000 from the UPS Foundation to help families stay close to their loved ones receiving critical care at Community Regional Medical Center.
When it comes to Terry’s House a lot of people are responsible for the successful campaign to build a home to help families of critically ill or injured patients stay close to their loved ones while they’re healing at Community Regional Medical Center. But two “ultimate” people stand out as leaders – Jim Christian and Jeff Kroeker – both successful businessmen with local construction companies who serve as Development Council co-chairs for Terry’s House.
Seeing the new building being built on Fresno and R streets on the way to their weekly doctor’s appointment piqued Jessica Albina and Gilbert Herrera’s interest – but they never dreamed it would become their home away from home when they most needed it.
Thank you to the Briscoe Family Foundation for pledging $25,000 to Terry’s House. Terry’s House is a 17,000-square-foot, two-story home within walking distance of Community Regional Medical Center in downtown Fresno. This hospitality home aims to keep families close in their greatest times of need by providing an affordable, family-centered residence for families with loved ones receiving care at Community Regional.
More than 250 donors celebrated the completion of Terry’s House on Jan. 6, touring what was a labor of love for local building trades people who gave their time and heavily discounted materials.

There’s a lot happening at the corner of Fresno and R streets in downtown Fresno. Where just five months ago stood a dirt lot, now stands a nearly finished house. And not just any house – Terry’s House – a 17,000-square-foot, two-story home that will lodge families whose loved ones are receiving critical care at Community Regional Medical Center.
