The heart and hands in the center of our NEW FRIENDS logo is the trademark of the Fisher House Foundation. It's an image that perfectly reflects the mission of Fisher House.
As we posted in 2016, Zachary Fisher founded this program because of his heart for military families. In the 25 years since, every house that is built reflects another caring community that has embraced the needs of military families in their town. Every volunteer who donates time and talent shows heart. Every check written (or online 'donate' button clicked) is a love note to the families in the House. Heart is demonstrated by the staff who don't only check in guests, clean the house or file reports but who, daily, drop what they are doing to listen, comfort and encourage.
And hands are at work every day, symbolizing the heart in action: preparing a meal, folding towels, placing a welcoming teddy bear on a bed, pulling a weed, writing a check (or clicking a button), decorating for a party, knitting, offering a hug to someone who is overwhelmed or tired or sad.
There are thousands of hands and hearts that embrace the mission of Fisher House, offering service and pouring out love to families far from home. It's a beautiful thing.
