Fisher Houses.

This listing for the Fisher Houses is correct to the best of our knowledge, as of October 2008. We used the information provided by the Fisher House[TM] Foundation. For corrections or updates, please contact Riley Miller, EP military editor, at rmiller@eparent.com.

For 18 years, the Fisher House program has been easing the burden for families of servicemembers recovering from injuries. The Fisher House Web site (http://www.fisherhouse.org) describes its program in the following way (at http://www.fisherhouse.org/theHouses/theHouses.shtml):

A Fisher House[TM] is "a home away from home" for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available. There are 40 Fisher Houses located on 18 military installations and ten VA medical centers.

The Fisher House locations in the listing below are arranged alphabetically by state and then alphabetically by location.
