Our Mission

Ambassadors for Community Health (A4CH) - Auxiliary at St. David's Medical Center was originally founded in 1955 as the Ladies Auxiliary, which was a paid membership organization. Our mission is to enrich the Central Texas community by providing support to patients and by funding scholarships for future healthcare professionals. Today, A4CH operates the Auxiliary Gift Shop in the lobby of St. David's Hospital in Austin, TX where dozens of volunteers help drive an impact. Sales from the store go directly to fund our Scholarship Program, and many other volunteer programs.
