Veteran’s Day Message

640 360 Fisher House

Fisher House is a home away from home to thousands of military and veteran families every year so they can be close to their loved ones receiving medical care at one of three hospitals in our region. Fisher House Southern California supports four Fisher Houses: one at the VA Long Beach Medical Center; one at Camp Pendleton; and two at San Diego Navy Medical Center.

In addition to their own private suite, families share a large, modern community kitchen, convivial dining room, spacious family room, and a well-stocked library. There are patios for barbecues and get-togethers as families bond with one another in the difficult process of nurturing their loved ones back to health through a sometimes long and arduous recovery. “I couldn’t make it on my own,” said one resident when talking about how important it was to share experiences with the other residents in the House. And, as one of the patients put it, “When I looked out the window at the Fisher House, I knew that’s where my family was and that motivated me each and every day.”

While the VA and Navy staff and maintain our Fisher Houses, you can help our families by making each House a real Home. Your donations provide home-like amenities such as computers, books and magazines, games and toys for the children (10 to 20% of our residents on any given day are children), quality toiletries, linen service, landscaping, golf carts for on-campus transportation and gift cards for food and other daily necessities.

We will soon be celebrating Veterans Day, not to mention the upcoming Christmas holidays. Please consider a gift in support of our military families staying at one of our Fisher Houses. We make available 15,330 nights of lodging for more than 1,000 families across four facilities each year. You may designate your gift for a specific location or to the greatest need. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

On behalf of the military and veteran families who benefit from your generosity, we send our thanks and best wishes to your family at this very special time of the year.
