We Need Your Support!
Here at the Fisher House, we never stop striving for the best we can offer and with your help we hope to make each one of our private suites just that much more comfortable. We are currently in the process of installing a new Spectrum cable service to all suites with the addition of new computers and TV/monitors, which will help make our guest feel more at home.
If you are interested in helping, please let us know your ideas!! We hope to either get financial support for this project, company donations, or discounted pricing for the 21 computers & TV/monitors but anything helps.
Our country relies on the United States Military to protect our homeland and our freedom, now they need to rely on us.
Thank you for your continued support for our fallen heroes!
ABOUT THE FISHER HOUSE
Fisher House Foundation is best known for the network of comfort homes built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. The Fisher Houses are 5,000 to 16,800 square-foot homes, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs, where families can stay while a loved one is receiving treatment. Additionally, the Foundation ensures that families of service men and women wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan are not burdened with unnecessary expense during a time of crisis.
Here in LA, the Greater Los Angeles Fisher House Foundation relies on your donations to support our mission. Your help is vital to assist us with paying for ongoing daily operations that are not covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are also working to raise funds for the construction of the second Greater Los Angeles Fisher House. Since there is a huge demand by families for lodging near VA and military hospitals treating their loved ones, we ask you to please help support this great cause.
