The VA Connecticut Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of veterans and military service members receiving care at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. The Fisher House enables family members to be close to their loved ones during hospitalization, by providing comfortable lodging in a beautiful and relaxing setting, only steps away from the medical center. There is never a charge for families staying at the Fisher House.
The VA Connecticut Fisher House has 16-bedroom suites to accommodate guests. The house features a fully stocked kitchen, spacious dining room, laundry room and common living areas for families to gather while loved ones are receiving care at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System.

The Fisher House Foundation builds and maintains long term residential facilities near military hospitals nationwide. The families of seriously injured soldiers need a place to stay during the long rehabilitation process.
This vital need is not covered by any other resource. Currently there are 54 Fisher Houses nationwide. Since 1990 they have provided services to over 142,000 military families who have stayed more than 3.6 million days supporting their soldier during rehabilitation.
Fisher Houses have saved these families more than $167 million in lodging and transportation costs. The facilities are supported by contributions and openings are granted in reverse order of rank, so that the lower enlisted soldiers have first chance at housing.
Underwritten by The Creed Law Firm, LLC, our organization has promised to raise $3 million for the construction of a Fisher House on the campus of the VA Healthcare System in West Haven, CT. Once our goal is reached, Fisher House Foundation Inc. will match our funds for a total of $6 million and construction can begin.
