HJF made a one-time, $58,000 donation to Fisher House Foundation, a portion of which will support multiple Fisher Houses across the country. Fisher House Foundation builds critical housing for the families of warfighters receiving medical care.
Fisher House Foundation is best known for its network of 88 comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, and in Europe, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee.
Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $500 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation. www.fisherhouse.org
