Fisher House Foundation for Military Families with Hospitalized Loved Ones

Category: Housing/Homelessness

Fisher Houses have offered housing comfort to military families whose loved ones are hospitalized since 1990.  There are over 60 homes in the U.S. and Germany which are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available.  

Fisher Houses are given to the U.S. Government as gifts. Military service secretaries and the Secretary of Veterans Affairs are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the homes. The Fisher House Foundation, Inc., a not-for-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code, builds new houses, and assists in the coordination of private support and encourages public support for the homes.
