Organization Information

Mission Statement

We are dedicated to the mission of enriching the lives of America’s Veterans and their families during their stay at the West Palm Beach Fisher House; and to provide a safe, "Home Away From Home" environment during their time of need while loved ones are hospitalized or receiving medical treatment at the VA Medical Center.

Description

For more than 25 years, the Fisher House program has provided a "Home Away From Home" for families of patients receiving medical care at nearby VA Medical Centers and Military Base hospitals. These beautiful homes are cost-free, temporary lodging to Military Veterans and their families allowing them to be close to their loved one during a medical crisis, relieving them of added financial stress and providing them the ability to focus on what’s important - the Healing Process. These homes are much more than just a refuge or free place to stay. They also provide a place for the entire family to bond with other Military families faced with similar challenges while healing together.

West Palm Beach Fisher Houses has 8 suites with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. In fiscal year 2015-2016 WPB Fisher House accommodated 862 families, provided 2750 nights of lodging for an estimated savings of $272,250 in lodging costs alone.

Fisher House Foundation has earned the highest Four Star Charity Navigator rating for the 13 th consecutive year in a row, and an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy.
