Fisher Houses offer a "home away from home" at no cost for families of patients receiving medical care at military treatment facilities. Each Fisher House offers comfortable accommodations that allow military families to focus on the medical care and recovery of their loved one. Guests are warmly welcomed by caring and compassionate staff members who offer encouragement and provide families with information about the resources and services available to help meet their needs.
All Navy and Marine Corps Fisher House operations fall under Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) oversight. Fisher Houses are constructed and donated by the Fisher House Foundation, Inc., a national nonprofit organization established to assist with the coordination of private support and encourage public support for the construction of Fisher Houses. The houses are located in proximity to military medical treatment facilities.
