HOPE for Healing
Our brave men and women, sons and daughter, husbands and wives serve in our military to protect our freedom and democracy throughout the world. Those that are inured face more challenges after their return home. Recovery can be long and arduous and having family there to be a part of the healing process in crucial. Imagine staying in hotels for months and months on a soldier’s income. That is next to impossible and not being able to see your family during recovery after so much sacrifice is unconscionable.

There was a dream that is now reality, providing affordable temporary housing for families of those facing a medical crisis. It is Fisher House. Fisher House 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 64 Fisher Houses located on 23 military installations and 24 VA medical centers. Many more houses are under construction or in design phase.

These wounded warriors are America’s families and we owe it to them to ensure they receive the care to bring them back to wellness, wholeness and happiness. This is America’s duty to our wounded warriors. Listen to our discussion and learn how you can be part of a great dream come true.
