Masco Veterans Partner Opens Doors
After years of tireless advocacy and fundraising, Fisher House Michigan has officially opened doors at its brand-new facility next to VA Ann Arbor!
Located around the world, Fisher Houses are free shelters to house families whose loved ones are being treated at nearby VA hospitals and military centers. As the first Fisher House in Michigan, the Ann Arbor facility is meeting a considerable need; since opening in June, they have already housed 150 families!
Masco was proud to help make the Ann Arbor Fisher House possible through $250,000 in donations for the $7M project. Fisher House Michigan is now working on plans for a second Michigan site, which would allow military families to stay in a safe and comforting environment close to VA Detroit. When both Michigan Fisher Houses are operational, they will be able to host as many as 11,680 families each year, saving families over $1.5 million annually in out-of-pocket lodging expenses.
Thank you to all who were involved in this important undertaking and those working to ensure current and former military members and their families can stay together during critical medical treatments.
