NOVEMBER MISSIONS PROJECT – FISHER HOUSE

           

Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of 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, close to the medical center or hospital they serve.  Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths, accommodating 16-42 family members. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a dining room, a living room with a library, and toys for children.  Newest houses are 100% handicap accessible and include elevators.  There are 78 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and 33 VA medical centers located in the US, Germany and United Kingdom.  Many more houses are under construction or in design.  Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. 


The Providence Missions Committee has chosen Fisher House Foundation as the November Children’s Time mission project in honor of Veteran’s Sunday on Nov. 11.  Offerings received for Fisher House will be sent to the 5-house complex near Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
