About the House
The Cincinnati Fisher House provides a home-away-from-home for seriously ill or injured veterans and their families receiving treatment at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center.
Since 2001, the Cincinnati Fisher House has provided accommodations to the families of hospitalized veterans from the tri-state area. Each year, over 1,000 guests are provided with complimentary meals and lodging to help relieve the financial hardship and physical discomfort resulting from extended medical stays far from home.
Sixteen families are welcomed nightly into the home-like setting of Fisher House for short or extended stays. Individual guest rooms provide privacy while comfortable, shared common areas allow families to interact with each other. Visiting families provide mutual support, and new friendships are often formed during their stays.
The Cincinnati Fisher House is part of a nation-wide program to form private-public partnerships that support America‚Äôs military families in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
