The May 2010 grand opening of the first Fisher House in Illinois on Hines VA Hospital grounds was celebrated spring 2015 with a festive Open House.

Volunteers, donors, sponsors, Hines VA Hospital personnel, Veterans Motorcycle Riders, VFW, American Legion Posts, Fisher House staff, Friends of Fisher House-Illinois Board and military family guests shared this milestone and the news that over 4,500 families have benefited from this marvelous humanitarian assistance to date.

With occupancy increased by 7 percent in 2015, the Fisher House will continue to depend on the generosity of donors and volunteers to provide lodging with meals free of charge for military families during medical crises.

Military Families Express Heartfelt Appreciation

Fisher House is a Godsend. So many of us want to be with our family members but can’t always afford it with the cost of travel, lodging and food. Thanks to Fisher House we can!

What a blessing! The Fisher House has relieved me of so much stress. Don’t know what I would have done.

This is such a great opportunity for families of veterans affected by war and illness. It warms my heart to see the government, community, families and those who serve out nation working together for the greater good.

My grandmother and I stayed at the Fisher House to keep my father company during his long treatment/recovery… If not for this home, my father would have been a sad and lonely man.

…The Fisher House provides peace of mind for the patient as well as their family…the manager and staff are a true blessing…
