Reaching Milestones – Fisher House Foundation

In support of Fisher House Foundation, we are honored to share their latest milestone. In a little over 25 years, Fisher House Foundation has built 75 Fisher Homes for Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs hospitals. Allowing the program to support up to 1,000 families per night. Fisher Homes can be found across the country, from the US to Germany and the United Kingdom. These homes have saved military and veterans’ families more than $400 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation. That is an incredible milestone to have reached so far in the effort of supporting our military and veteran families in their time of need.

About Fisher House

A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available. There are 72 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and 29 VA medical centers. Many more houses are under construction or in design.

Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $360 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
