Pampering the Families
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 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.
Friends Donates New Appliances
Guests Night Out (GNO)
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 all costs borne 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'.
Guest Mylean put it simply:: "I never thought I would be given a gift like this."
