The Naval Medical Center San Diego’s Fisher House provides military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease, or injury. The families that come are facing a crisis of some sort and are usually very overwhelmed and/or in shock. The Fisher House tries to anticipate ever need the families may have while staying at the House so that they can focus all of their attention on their hospitalized family member.

We had an awesome time Nov 15th providing meals for the Naval Medical Center San Diego’s Fisher Houses and baking some delicious cookies!! The families we met were so grateful and the staff was pretty impressed. We even got to see some of the guest suites and learn about the wonderful services the Fisher House provides for military families. Thank you to the amazing ladies who volunteered for this shift – you all are amazing!
