Words from Guests February 12, 2018

My daughter and son-in-law had a scheduled C-section on Monday.  I wanted to be close and packed my bag with the thought that I would sleep in labor and delivery waiting room.  My son-in-law contacted the Fisher House and secured me a room and what a blessing the Fisher House has been.  It has been so convenient!  My oldest daughter and granddaughter came down from South Caroline and it was nice to bring my granddaughter over for a break.  We enjoyed the board games, corn hole and the library, snacked while playing.  The house is amazing, down to every detail!  I had the pleasure to spend time with the staff; Marc, Don and Judy were so welcoming!  This would be a wonderful place to volunteer or work!  Thanks again for helping me be comfortable welcoming my granddaughter!

Words from our Guests – February 9, 2018

“I am so grateful to be able to stay here.  My niece was injured really bad in a car accident and family needed to be here.  I jumped on a plane with no clue where I would sleep when I arrived.  God opened all doors and made a way, then Fisher House did the rest.  Thank you so much and may God bless you all.”

Fisher House takes 3rd at Grand Boulevard Festival of Trees

Thanks to the combined talents of Kathryn Guidry, who decorated our tree and Lauren Reho, who dressed as Dorothy and woo-ed the judges, our Fisher House of the Emerald Coast placed third, netting $1,000 for our home on Eglin AFB.  This month long event supports 12 charities at Grand Boulevard and provides a great outreach tool.  We leave our buddy bench onsite and encourage selfies posted on our social media.
