Fisher House helps injured vets heal with family

After Iraq war veteran, Joel Evans suffered a traumatic brain injury when he was in a motorcycle crash in Las Vegas he was flown to the VA hospital in Tampa where his family stayed at the Fisher House for two months.

"There's no way that we could be here with our son through this whole recovery if it wasn't for Fisher House," Joan said.

"We can visit our son in the middle of the night if we want to," Joel's father, Jim Evans said. "We can be with him any part of the day if we want to and we are right here on the ground."

Military Families Express Thanks

When asked ‘where do you want to go on vacation?’

I thought…and thought and answered:

Hines Fisher House!

Not for the fun and games
which were great but for the camaraderie – mutual trust
and friendship among people
who spend a lot of time

Thank You…
