Fisher House North Dakota

Benefit Category: State

The Fargo VA HCS has been approved for a Fisher House! 

See news release

The Fisher House ND will provide a “home away from home” for families of patients receiving care at the Fargo VAHCS. The accommodations are at no cost to the guests. The House would be located on or near the VAHCS campus allowing military and veteran families to be close to their loved ones during a medical crisis and close to other families going through a similar experience. Easy comparison is that a Fisher House is like a Ronald McDonald House for Veterans.

            The Fargo VAHCS provides health care to 33 thousand veterans living throughout North Dakota, 17 counties in Minnesota and one in South Dakota. Our reach is large and the need is the greatest when veterans are hospitalized and families require a close place to stay. The Fisher House ND Committee is tasked with fund raising the estimated $8 million for the construction costs of the Fisher House. Once the Fisher House is constructed it will be donated to the Federal VA after which all operating costs will be funded by the Federal VA.
