    Providing a "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.

Statement from Fisher House Foundation Chairman and CEO Kenneth Fisher - March 11, 2010

"We are thrilled and honored to be chosen as a recipient of President Obama's Nobel Prize award money. For 20 years, Fisher House has supported our troops and veterans by providing housing for their loved ones during their care and rehabilitation at military installations and VA medical centers around the world. It is a responsibility we take very seriously and have accepted as our duty and obligation to our servicemen and women."
