Boston Marathon Charity
Fisher House Boston is located at the VA Boston Healthcare Medical facility in West Roxbury, and was the 46th Fisher House to be built in the country. They recognize not only the special sacrifices made by our men and women who serve in uniform, but also their loved ones. The Fisher House Boston is a home away from home where our military families can stay while a loved one is receiving in house treatment at one of our medical centers. Any family member or loved one of an active military or Veteran’s family, wartime or peacetime, is eligible to stay at the Fisher House. These homes are built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers.
The homes enable family members to be close to loved ones at the most stressful times. There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. There is NO Charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House. They are completely committed to helping those who have served for us and for our country.
Fisher House Foundation is a nationally recognized highly rated Not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. They have held a four star Charity Navigator rating for the past seven years and one of only four military charities receiving an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy.
