Our mission is to provide our military members and their families a comfortable, nuturing and secure environment while they receive medical care at Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC). The Fisher House is located about one half mile from MAMC. The house provides seven family rooms with private bathrooms, TV/DVD, WiFi, telephone and computers. The house has a living room, dining room and kitchen; these common areas are shared by all families. The FH will provide most amenities to include toiletries, towels, linens, high chairs, booster seats, futons, “pack and plays”. Families are responsible for their meals and the kitchen is well furnished with the items needed for food preparation. Each family will have some refrigerator and freezer space plus a cabinet for their food. Laundry area and detergent are provided. Fisher Houses prioritizes their rooms according to the severity of the medical condition. All active duty, retired military and military family members who live at least 40 miles away from the medical center are eligible. Referaral can be made in advance, however, that does not guarantee placement into the FH. There is no charge to stay at the FH and demand for our rooms is high; because of this, families should make a back-up plan and be prepared to stay in a local hotel (average $125 a night). The Fisher House receives a significant portion of their funding through charitable contributions. Our donations come from individuals, spouses’ clubs, military organizations, and chapel designated offerings. The Fisher house operates as a Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentality (NAFI) of the United States Army. Donations made to the Fisher House are tax deductible.
