Fort Belvoir To Be The Site Of A New Fisher House For Military Families

The Fisher House Foundation was established in to provide a "comfort home" for military families who need a place to stay while a loved one is being treated for injury or illness at a military hosptial.  Started as a public-private partnership in 1990, Fisher Houses around the country provided a home away from home for over 12,000 families.

Now Fort Belvoir will be the site of the newest Fisher House in Virginia.  The other two Virginia properties are located at the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, VA and the Hunter Holmes McGuire house in Richmond Virginia.  The new home at Fort Belvoir will feature 12 family suites, a kitchen, dining sitting rooms and den.  The house is being built across the street from the new Fort Belvoir Community Hospital which opened in Fal 2011.

The 10,000 square foot home is scheduled to be completed in April 2012.   It is a compliment to not only the new Fort Belvoir hospital but the Wounded Warrior Transition Unit on post as well.  Fisher House is supported by not only the Department of Defense but also by a private foundation.  It is a cause that I've personally been involved in, touched by and contributed to for years.

If you are interested in learning more about Fisher House you can check out their website.  In addtion to the Fisher House the foundation also supports Hero Miles and Scholarships for Military Children.

This is terrific Cindy.  We have Fisher house here in San Antonio, Tx (actually, I am pretty sure we have a few of them), and they are a great resource for those family members who have a wounded warrior and need living arrangements for the often time, long critical care these Soldiers need.

Good Morning Cindy, That is terrific news, I have heard of it but did not know that much about the Fisher House. I do not think we can do enough for our heros and their families who sacraficed so much. Have a great Friday

Sounds like a much needed resource for military families. They have sacrificed so much already, the least we can do is offer them a respite for a medical situations. Thank YOU for your involvement and support of the Fisher House for Fort Belvoir. D
