They are located by major military hospitals or veterans hospitals. When a wounded serviceman or servicewoman has been injured in combat operations and is facing a long rehabilitation to be restored to health, often these hospitals are far from the servicemember's home. Fisher Houses are for the servicemember's family to come as stay next to their loved one while they recuperate, at no cost to the family.
It has been found that the wounded servicemember's recovery is helped and sped up by having family close by. It is a wonderful thing for a sad time. Our servicemembers and their families have sacrificed tremendously to keep our country strong and free. Fisher Houses help to repay in a small way the tremendous debt we owe our wounded warriors.
