This is the blessing business you are in partnership with us.  The who behind the you….

“I travelled all the way from RAF Alconbury in England to receive some much-needed mental health treatment here in Florida.  The Fisher House was a true blessing.  I was able to stay for a full 4-week treatment program and not worry about an overpriced hotel stay without options for cooking my own meals.  The staff here was very kind and helpful throughout my stay.  I truly appreciated the warm hospitality and comfortable environment.  God Bless you all!”

The reason for the Fisher House…..brought to this family by a generous community who love our military like we do.  Saying thank you in a tangible and meaningful way.

“My daughter was suddenly hospitalized at Eglin AFB last week and I drove from Jacksonville to be with her for an undetermined number of days. I started in a hotel room, but one of the nurses at the Eglin hospital told me about Fisher House, which I knew nothing about. What an absolutely incredible and pleasant surprise! From the moment I walked in and met Robert, to the moment I left, Fisher House was nothing but a God-sent blessing for me. It allowed me to focus my time and attention on my daughter and not worry about the logistics of my stay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the love and grace of Fisher House. Merry Christmas!”

The blessing business and you….

We are blessed with many big hearts in the community who share our mission in various ways.  Thanks to

Barbara Day for this one. Check out her blog here, we are featured!  Thanks, Barbara!


August 5 – Words from Guests

“This is my third visit to this most amazing facility and the hospitality is unmatched by any other like facility I have ever visited. The support of their amazing staff is unlimited, I just feel so much better, both mentally and physically. As I depart after being here since late April 2022, I cannot do justice to the staff and facility due to my limited ability to express in words how much I have improved, just since I first arrived. Thanks to all of you for the wonderful service which you provide to our veterans and our families. May the good Lord bless of you.” USMC (Ret) A three war, 100% combat disabled Veteran.”
