What is a Fisher House?
A Fisher House is a “home away from home” 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 typically have 16 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 $407 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
Caring for Families
Military and Veteran families served, too.
Military families stand by the side of their Service Members throughout their careers, through deployments and overseas stations. They command the homefront while their loved ones serve around the world.
Fisher Houses allow the families to remain by the side of their loved ones during the toughest of battles — the battle for continued health after service.
Together, the Ann Arbor and Detroit Fisher Houses will provide 11,680 nights of free lodging annually, saving Veterans and their families over $1.5 million in out-of-pocket costs.
