Guests at Fisher House are here for one reason: to provide support and encouragement to their ill or injured loved one. However, the role of the caretaker is a heavy one. The stresses of illness and being away from home are challenging. We are grateful to the donors and volunteers who give their time, treasure, and talent to provide these programs to our guests.
Guest programs and services at the Fisher House may include:
A Stocked Fridge
Movie night (monthly excursion, including popcorn)
Quarterly board dinners
Catering or groceries for major holidays
Mother’s Day brunch
Transportation including Orca cards
Holiday exterior lighting
Weekly events and classes
Holiday stockings & gifts
Toiletries & welcome gifts

Guests Night Out
Volunteers Cook Healthy Meals for Guests
Fisher House guests, especially those here for extended stays, can sometimes go a little stir crazy. They need a shift in routine but are reluctant to leave campus. We encourage them to get out and about with a monthly "GNO" or "Guests Night Out."
We explore neighborhood restaurants and other venues, with costs covered by the Friends. More than the food or seeing a new part of town, guests most appreciate an opportunity to get away and feel 'normal.'
Our fridge is always stocked and our amazing volunteers ensure that our Fisher House guests never have to worry about what's for dinner!
Well Donut Friday may be an exception to the healthy rule, but our guest love it!
Guest Mylean put it simply, "I never thought I would be given a gift like this."
