For more than 25 years, the Fisher House Foundation has provided “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. These homes offer free, temporary lodging to military and veterans’ families, allowing them to be close to their loved one during a medical crisis and focus on what’s important—the healing process. There are 75+ Fisher Houses located in the US, Germany and United Kingdom.
Fisher House Foundation has several other major programs:
Hero Programs — Allows donated frequent flyer miles and hotel points to be used to bring family members to the bedside of injured or ill service members.
Newman’s Own Award — A grant program that supports other military charities.
Scholarships — A grant program that provides scholarships to children and spouses of military families.
Fisher House Foundation, Inc. is an international nonprofit organization established to improve quality of life for members of the military, retirees, veterans, and their families. The Foundation builds comfort homes at military and VA medical centers and gifts them to the government.
