"Since 1991 Fisher Houses have been serving military families during times of medical crisis. These comfort homes are built by the Fisher House Foundation, Inc., and given as gifts to the military Services and the Veterans Administration."
The Fisher House Foundation was established by noted philanthropist and patriot Zachary Fisher and his wife, Elizabeth. Zachary passed away in June 1999, but his nephews, Arnold and Tony Fisher, and his great-nephew, Ken Fisher, continue to build Fisher Houses and carry on Zachary's legacy of helping military men and women and their families.
The Camp Lejeune Fisher House is within walking distance of the hospital and Wounded Warrior Complex. It is a comfortable temporary home, filled with warm, caring people who help family members endure the stresses associated with a loved one's serious medical condition. The Fisher House enables families to stay together, cook meals, do laundry, and relax in a "home away from home" atmosphere. There are no other facilities on military installations that provide this caring, compassionate environment. Fisher Houses do not receive tax money or military dollars. Charitable contributions provide the majority of our funding.
"Dedicated to our greatest national treasure...Our military service men and women and their loved ones" -- Zachary Fisher
