BENEFITING: FISHER HOUSE OF GREATER CLEVELAND INC
The Greater Cleveland Fisher House
The wives, husbands, children, mothers and fathers of injured, wounded or seriously ailing vets from all wars are given a place to stay within a few hundred yards of their loved one. Families of veterans being treated at the Cleveland V.A., Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, Metro or any specialty hospital may stay free of charge.
It will be a 16,500 square foot home with 18 suites to accommodate up to 42 family members. And it will be built on the grounds of the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in Cleveland.
For the sake of community pride and purpose Greater Cleveland is asked to raise one-half of the $7 million to build and furnish a Fisher House here. The Fisher Foundation will match that figure, construct the house and turn it over to the V.A. to operate in 2014.
