Double your impact! Honor a Veteran today (Fisher House Michigan (FHM) Is Buiding a Place For Veteran Families To Stay In Ann Arbor)

Fisher House is paying for half, the balance must be raised.



In May and June, your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar!


A veteran of the Global War on Terrorism said, "We were at war while America was at Walmart." As our Armed Forces are always asked to do more with less, it is easy to forget the daily sacrifices these men and women and their families make on our behalf.  At Fisher House Michigan (FHM), we not only honor this sacrifice of Iraq & Afghanistan vets, but that of nearly 650,000 veterans living in Michigan who served since WWII.
Our Mission:
Build a 16-suite home on the grounds of the Ann Arbor VA Healthcare System in order to provide free, temporary accommodations for veterans & their families while the veteran is receiving medical attention at the Ann Arbor VA.
Your Mission:
Serve those who served. Honor the service of Michigan veterans by helping us raise awareness and raise funds in order to break ground on the first Fisher House in Michigan by 2019. 
There are 71 Fisher Houses around the country and overseas... our veterans deserve one here.
