What being a part of Fisher House means… our house staff, Guest Hospitality Chere’ York

“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” – Harry Truman.

This quote is one I remember from middle school. It has always instilled and inspired me to give back whenever I can. I was familiar with similar houses because of my sister using the Ronald McDonald house when my nephew was born with a tumor on his lung. After his medical condition was treated, I started doing so much research on that house and similar missions. It was like a match made in heaven when I saw a position open at the fisher house. I come from a medical background, but knew my heart was in for something more specifically directed to a more individualized way to give back. I remembered that quote and knew I had to be a part of this! I have spent many hours on duty and off advocating and spreading awareness of the house and the mission. The future was and still is unsure and not promised but I couldn’t pick a better place to call my second home!

What being a part of Fisher House means……to our staff, Judyann Schneider

What being a part of Fisher House means to our staff…..Manager Robert Campbell

 “To be a part of such an amazing organization that takes care of our nation’s veteran’s is such an honor and privilege. It means waking up with a sense of purpose each day knowing that I am affecting the lives of veterans and their families. It means as a veteran myself and helping veterans through a difficult time in their lives and I want to pay forward the hospitality to them and in return when I need assistance the Fisher House will be there for me and my family.”

Ever wonder about the impact of staying at a Fisher House for our military families?  Read here.

“To the wonderful people here at Fisher House – what a kind, loving, amazing place this is.  You go above and beyond with your beautiful set up, building and grounds.  Sinc we live in NH, when our son was hurt in Florida, you so kindly were able to put us up while we healed in adjoining rooms.  My husband was able to work remotely and I was able to help assist his recovery.  We were here a lot longer than I thought we would be, yet you never once made us feel uncomfortable.  God bless you!”

February 6 – Words from Guests

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!”
