The mission of the Tennessee Fisher House Foundation is simple. Dedicated to the enrichment of the quality of life of active-duty military, veterans, and their families who stay at the Tennessee Fisher House in Murfreesboro located on the campus of the Alvin C. York VA Medical Center while a loved one is undergoing extended medical treatment at the VA Medical Center.

When veterans undergo medical treatment for several weeks or months, Fisher House provides a place to stay at no cost to their families. This “home away from home” enables family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful time – during hospitalization for a disease, illness or injury. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and their families and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Department of Defense and Department of Veteran Affairs.

For more information visit or call 615-916-1310 to learn more and how you can donate goods/services /financially to assist the non-profit in the efforts to serve veterans. The Tennessee Fisher House mostly serves families of veterans from Tennessee, North Alabama, Southern Kentucky, and Northwest Georgia. We believe a family’s love is good medicine.
