Since 1990 Fisher Houses have been serving military families during times of medical crisis. These comfort homes are built by the Fisher House Foundation, Inc., and given as gifts to the military Services and the Veterans Administration. The Army is the proud recipient of 12 of the 29 existing Fisher Houses.
The Fisher House Foundation was established by noted philanthropist and patriot Zachary Fisher and his wife, Elizabeth. Zachary passed away in June 1999, but his nephews, Arnold and Tony Fisher, and his great–nephew, Ken Fisher, continue to build Fisher Houses and carry on Zachary's legacy of helping military men and women and their families.
The Fisher House is within walking distance of the hospital. It is a comfortable temporary home, filled with warm, caring people who help family members endure the stresses associated with a loved one's serious medical condition. The Fisher House enables families to stay together, cook meals, do laundry, and relax in a "home away from home" atmosphere. There are no other facilities on military installations that provide this caring, compassionate environment. The nominal service fee charged Fisher House guests is lower than other on–post lodging and much lower than off–post hotels. While we all wish there were no need for Fisher Houses, the reality of life is that thousands of active duty and retired military and veterans' families are served each year by this wonderful network of beautiful homes love!
Army Fisher Houses do not receive tax money or soldier dollars. Charitable contributions provide the majority of our funding.
