FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION
Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher of New York founded the Fisher House™ Foundation Inc., a nationally recognized not-for-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code, with the intention of meeting a humanitarian need for our nation’s hospitalized military service members, veterans and their families.
There are 84 Fisher Houses located on 25 military installations and 34 VA medical centers, in the UK & Germany
The Fisher House™ program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need.
Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House™ Foundation donates comfort homes built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time – during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
There is at least one Fisher House™ at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. For more on the visit Fisher House™ Foundation Inc. at www.fisherhouse.org
