Overview

The Fisher House is a "home away from home" for military personnel (both active and retired) and their families during a medical crisis. The house has a warm, compassionate environment where families and caring friends can nurture one another in times of need. It offers families a clean, safe, low–cost respite from the stress of worrying about loved ones. The house was a gift to the Fort Hood community from Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher of New York.

The Fisher House is located on the corner of Santa Fe Drive and Wratten Drive, in the south parking lot of the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center.
