For more than 25 years, the Fisher House program 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 72 Fisher Houses* located in the US, Germany and United Kingdom.
There are other ways every American can support military families through the Fisher House Foundation:
• Hero Miles: Provides airline tickets to wounded, injured and ill service members and their families in support of their continued recovery process. This is done with donated frequent flyer miles—even 1,000 miles makes a difference.
• Hotels for Heroes: Provides free hotel rooms to military and Veteran families whose loved one is being treated at a DoD or VA hospital when a Fisher House is either full or unavailable. This is done through donated hotel points.
