“Your there with somebody who is in the same situation you are dealing with and you’re not alone.”
The mission of the Friends of Lexington Fisher House is to spearhead a capital campaign to build a Fisher House at the Lexington VA Health Care System’s Sousley Campus on Leestown Road in Lexington, Kentucky. The Fisher House will serve veterans’ families by providing a safe, supportive and loving comfort home away from home at no cost while their loved one is receiving treatment at the VA. The 13,400 square foot house will feature 16 private suites with a common kitchen, dining and living area. It is estimated the house will save families $600,000 in lodging and transportation and provide up to 5,840 lodging days annually. The house will be gifted to the VA upon completion.
