Premier is proud to support the Fisher House Foundation
Providing military families with comfort while brave Americans receive medical treatment
The Fisher House Foundation provides “a home away from home” for military families while an injured or ill military member or veteran receives medical care at a major military or VA medical center. Nationwide, there are 64 Fisher Houses located on 23 military installations and 24 VA medical centers, including locations in Tampa, Gainesville and St. Petersburg. More houses are currently under construction or in design.
Each Fisher House is designed to provide eight to 21 family suites. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Serving more than 250,000 military families since 1990, the Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee.
With an average stay of 10 nights per family an estimated $235 million in out-of-pocket costs for lodging and transportation has been saved for these courageous military families.
The Fisher House Foundation also operates the “Hero Miles” program, using donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members as well as the “Hotels for Heroes” program, using donated hotel points to allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers without charge. The Foundation also manages a grant program that supports other military charities and scholarship funds for military children, spouses and children of fallen and disabled veterans.
For every dollar collected by the Fisher House Foundation 95 cents is spent on the programs and services designed to assist our military families. The Fisher House Foundation is a not-for-profit organization and has received a 99.62 (out of 100) and four star (out of four stars) rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent rater of charity organizations.
Please consider joining the Premier family and supporting the Fisher House Foundation and let's help those brave American families who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
