Fisher House Foundation

The Fisher House Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides a unique and crucial service for veterans and their families. Their primary focus is on providing free temporary housing to military and veteran families who are facing a medical crisis.

Fisher Houses are comfortable and supportive homes located near major military and VA medical centers. These houses provide a welcoming and accessible environment where families can stay while their loved ones receive medical treatment. Fisher Houses offer private bedrooms, shared living spaces, kitchens, laundry facilities, and supportive amenities to ensure a home-like experience.

Staying at a Fisher House allows families to connect with others who are facing similar challenges, providing an invaluable source of emotional support and camaraderie during difficult times. Fisher Houses create a compassionate and supportive community for veterans and their families.

The strategic location of Fisher Houses near major military and VA medical centers ensures that families can stay close to their loved ones and easily access the medical care and resources they need without the burden of finding and paying for accommodations.

One of the most significant aspects of Fisher House Foundation’s services is that they offer free lodging to military and veteran families. Families do not have to worry about the financial burden of accommodation expenses during a stressful and challenging time, allowing them to focus on supporting their loved ones’ medical needs.

Fisher Houses are designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with disabilities. They provide accessible features such as wheelchair ramps, elevators, and adapted bathrooms to ensure that all guests, including those with mobility challenges, can comfortably stay and navigate the facilities.

The Fisher House Foundation continually works to expand and renovate existing houses to meet the growing demand for accommodations. They strive to ensure that there are enough Fisher Houses available to serve as many military and veteran families as possible.

In addition to lodging services, Fisher House Foundation operates the Hero Miles program, which provides free airline tickets to eligible military and veterans and their families, allowing them to travel to receive medical care. The Hotels for Heroes program also offers hotel accommodations for families when a Fisher House is not available or located far from the medical facility.

The Fisher House Foundation’s services alleviate the emotional and financial strain on military and veteran families by providing them with a supportive and comfortable home away from home during medical crises. Their commitment to helping military and veteran families underscores their dedication to supporting those who have served our country.
