How You Can Help
Support for the Fisher Houses comes in a variety of ways, from individuals, businesses, foundations and the military. You can donate money, offer volunteer services and help with our fundraisers, sponsor an event, give a gift from our wishlist, or buy some of our commemorative coins….
What defines all our supporters is their commitment to providing compassionate care to members of our military family in their time of need. However you can help, know that your help is appreciated.
A poem from the mother of one of our Fisher House guests best sums up the importance of our mission:
A Port In A Storm
We came to a town we did not know,
Without a friend in sight;
With doors wide open, arms out stretched,
You bid us stay the night.
Others who were far from home
Had lit upon your door
And having similar hopes and fears,
Shared comfort, smiles and more.
You touch the lives of this who stay –
A shelter in the storm,
For lives in chaos, fear and strife,
A haven, safe and warm.
