Expansion planned for organization providing housing to families of VA health care system patients in Pittsburgh area

Fisher House: Providing Free Housing and Support for Military Families in the Pittsburgh Area

The Fisher House is a national organization that provides free housing for family members of military members and veterans who are being treated at VA hospitals. In the Pittsburgh area, the Fisher House has a housing center next to the VA hospital in Oakland that can accommodate 10 families at a time. This facility offers a comfortable place for families to stay and relieve some of the stress that comes with having a loved one in the hospital.

Families who stay at the Fisher House save an average of $1,900 during their six-day stay. The organization is planning to expand its services by building a new facility in O’Hara Township, which is expected to open in 2026. This new facility will provide housing for even more families, including those who have relatives in nursing homes, hospice care, or rehab at the VA hospital.

The cost to build a Fisher House is $9 million, and the organization is working to raise $3 million in funding. They are seeking corporate sponsorships to help bridge the gap in funding for the new facility. With donations and community support, they hope to continue providing support and housing for military and veteran families in need.
