Review from Guidestar
February 14, 2011

In the summer of 1999, I worked at the facilities at Walter Reed Medical Center and the annex near Bethesda. My wife, Joan, had one of her many surgeries for brain cancer and we both stayed in the welcome refuge of the DC area Fisher Houses at different periods.
I helped and enjoyed working
on the landscaping and grounds. We were blessed to have such support in a tough time when family was hundreds of miles away. Vivian Wilson, who moved to Germany later, was outstanding to work with

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My experience was the best I've had with any non-profit. outside a church. Few if any organizations come close to their high professionalism and a very high portion of all expenses go to their mission directly.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have more charitable groups match their administrative overhead ratio

Im not only a volunteer for this organization but my husband is in the Army and went through a tour in Iraq. I am confident and certain that if anything were to happen we would be taken care of. Thankfully he came home fine but so many dont. The service members I see are incredible, they go through so much, they are truly fighters in ways you wouldnt imagine. I love working with them. Im honored to work with them.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The miltiary is like a family but the folks at fisher house, residents, employees and volunteers alike are bonded together like glue.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring, supportive, informative,

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The thing we need help with most is building alot more of these facilities, service members are coming home everyday injured in ways you cant immagine and if we can help in some small way to help them get through these times as a nation we need to do it!!

About every six months
