Volunteering for the Fisher Houses

One of the major keys to the success of the Wright-Patterson Fisher Houses is its volunteer program. The one full-time manager and part-time manager could not possibly conduct the day-to-day operations of the Houses while supporting the guests in the way that they need.

That’s where the Fisher Houses volunteers provide an invaluable service! They drive the House guests to the Base Exchange, the Commissary or the Medical Center, assist them in getting settled into their rooms, talk with them and console them. No matter what the guests need, the volunteers are there to support them in every way possible.

In 2017, the Fisher Houses volunteers provided 861.75 hours of service to the House guests and group volunteers provided another 674 hours. In addition, popcorn volunteers provided 1,150 hours. Utilizing the Independent Sector latest estimated value of volunteer time of $24.14 an hour, that’s a $64,834 savings!
