Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute at Galveston donates a transport bus to St. Vincent House, supporting their ongoing social services efforts in Galveston County

GALVESTON, Texas -- On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute at Galveston donated a Ford E350 Super Duty Bus to St. Vincent House to support their ongoing social services efforts for residents in Galveston County. The keys and title were presented to representatives of the St. Vincent House by Robert A. Prehn, Ph.D., President & CEO of Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute.

"Since 1982, Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute has provided needed traumatic brain injury rehabilitation, education and assistance to patients from Galveston and throughout the United States. In a similar way, St. Vincent's House has provided important physical, mental, and spiritual services to our community for over 60 years," said Dr. Prehn.

St. Vincent's House partners with a number of agencies in order to provide community clinical services, case management, emergency assistance, and spiritual services.

"The ability to move about for essential obligations or activities is something most of us take for granted. (Moody Neuro's) gift of the TLC Ford E350 Super Duty Bus will greatly enhance the services offered by St. Vincent's, including food distribution and clothing collection," said Paula Tobon-Stevens, Executive Director for St. Vincent House. "When COVID protocols allow, we will resume transporting clients to jobs, medical, social services and counseling appointments at St. Vincent's and other providers, grocery shopping, banking and other transit needs of our clients."
