The Fisher Houses provide support, compassionate care, and lodging for patients and their families receiving treatment at the Wright-Patterson Medical Center or the Dayton VA Medical Center.
To date, the Houses have served more than twenty-five thousand families from all branches of the military, from stateside to overseas, active duty, retired, Guard and Reserve. In 2019, more than 1,200 families were assisted. Dayton area Fisher Houses comprise 37 total bedroom suites, equivalent to 13,505 nights a year (using Dayton per diem rate = savings to guests of more than $2M annually). As a matter of fact, since May 1990, the Dayton area Fisher Houses have had the capacity to support more than 200,000 nights for the guests and, at a calculation of a hotel cost of $125 per night, the Houses have had the capability to save the guests more than $25,000,000 in hotel costs alone!
The average length of stay in one of our houses is about 11 days, however some stay with us for a few days, others a few months, and some up to even a year in length.
