We hit a big milestone in March when we opened the doors to our 60th Fisher House, the 8th in San Antonio, Texas. Over the last 22 years these 60 houses have provided a home for over 180,000 Veteran and military families. With the addition of this house we now have presence at all the VA hospitals treating our most critically wounded, at the polytrauma rehabilitation centers. We couldn't do it without the support of people like you.

The only way [Kelly Eakins] can physically be here for Steven, day in and day out, is through the Fisher House. She's been here for almost three years.

"It has been very trying, lots of ups and downs with the recovery process. Especially with the severe traumatic brain injury- very slow process." 

"They talk to Steven and the love on Steven, that does my heart so much good. Just to see that it's not just me, he's got so many other people that are caring for him," Kelly says.
