Special Kinds of “Heroes” Help Hines VA Fisher House Mission Benefitting Veterans & Their Families

Divas and Lynch

A military hero in his own right, Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Allen J. Lynch (USA, Ret.) a meets the “Divas” whom FOFH-IL considers heroes because they have been volunteering to prepare meals from scratch for military families at Hines Fisher House for years.

Sgt. Lynch has joined FOFH-IL as a Board-Member-at-Large to assist with sustaining Hines VA Fisher House and the 2nd future Fisher House at Lovell Federal Healthcare Center.

The “Divas” continue to arrive at Hines Fisher House with raw ingredients in hand and good humor to cook fantastic homemade meals for military family guests.

FOFH-IL and Hines Fisher House staff are grateful for the generosity of benefactors like these who help us fulfill our mission to support military families during medical crises.


Military Families Express Heartfelt Appreciation

I’m overwhelmed by the impeccable service…this has been one of the most beautiful experiences under the circumstances for my Dad’s medical problems…grateful doesn’t cover how I feel and blessed.


This our first time at the Fisher House—how amazing it is! ...thank you for providing comfort when we’re feeling most uncertain of what our future holds…after long days at the hospital it’s so nice to find fellowship upon return “home.”


Back nice to know the Fisher House and staff are here for us. Especially when there is so much unknown in the future of my husband’s health…you provide for us at a time when we are dealing with issues that sometimes overwhelm us.


The staff didn’t act like staff. They treated us like family. I thought it would be like living in barracks. Wow, was I wrong! I’m grateful to Fisher House..found a new charity that is near and dear to my heart.


This stay helped so much! God blessed me by allowing us to stay in the Fisher House which gives peace in this timed of need.


After being here 32 days, we are going home…Fisher House is a lifesaver..what a beautiful place! Thankful for everyone who touched our lives.
