About Fisher House

Some many not know, but injured soldiers are sent to the nearest available bed in a hospital- not one close to home. You could be from Washington state and end up in Florida, thousands of miles away from your family, hurting, for months.

Fisher House provides homes near VA hospitals so that injured soldiers’ family members can live near them while they’re going through rehab at no cost to the family. Fisher House provides meals, room and board, and transportation for the family.

More than 30,000 families were helped in 2016, and over 307,000 since its founding.

Fun Fact

11,000 students have received $18,000,000 in scholarship awards. Over 65,000 airline tickets provided by Hero Miles to service members and their families, worth nearly $100 million.
