Fisher Houses Will Provide Free, Temporary Lodging to Military & Veteran Families

ANN ARBOR –  The VA Ann Arbor Fisher House is the first Fisher House to be built in the state of Michigan and opens on Monday, June 1, 2020. There are currently 87 Fisher Houses located in the U.S., Germany, and the United Kingdom. The VA Ann Arbor Fisher House is a beautiful “home away from home” that will provide high quality, temporary lodging to families and caregivers of Veterans and active duty Service members who are undergoing an episode of care at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System (VAAAHS) Medical Center or in conjunction with a Veterans Health Administration (VHA) authorized hospital stay in the local community. The Fisher House will enable family members to be close to their loved one during a hospitalization by providing comfortable, cost free lodging, in a relaxed setting that will only be a short walk away from the VA Ann Arbor Medical Center.

This 13,400 sq. foot home, that is professionally furnished and decorated, is able to accommodate up to 16 families per night. Up to four family members will be able to share one spacious guest suite, each with a private bathroom. Guests will share a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, modern laundry room, spacious dining room, an inviting family room, and outdoor patio. Each of the suites are furnished with telephones, smart TV’s, alarm clocks, and DVD players. There is also free Wi-Fi throughout the home.

The VA Ann Arbor Fisher House has benefited from the tireless efforts of Fisher House Michigan, a non-profit organization, that has raised more than $7 million of their $20 million goal to support the construction of any Fisher House built in Michigan and to support the families utilizing the houses once completed. Fisher House Foundation constructed the house and gifted it to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to support the need in Michigan upon its completion on April 20, 2020. Construction on the VA Ann Arbor Fisher House began in late April 2019 and the groundbreaking ceremony took place June 14, 2019.
