Words from Guests:
“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.”
“My grandson and I enjoyed staying and playing at the Fisher House. Thank you so much for your caring and sharing. It made us feel so special. We really appreciate everything. God bless!”
“Fisher House is awesome. It was amazing to have this beautiful place to stay. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher will never know the people they touched. From the time we walked in the door until 4 days later when we left, all you could do was feel the love of residents and staff. Everyone had a reason for being here and we shared our fears and hope of recovery. Thank you for providing a loving environment during a trying time.”
