Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North is a proud supporter of ​​Fisher House Michigan. Rotary Club Ann Arbor North has promoted fundraising activities, and has had our own bowling fundraisers.
 
Fisher House Michigan will address an unmet need in Michigan, by supporting the 650,000 military families whose loved ones have served our country. It will provide a free place for them to stay at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, while the family member is undergoing treatment for a physical or psychological medical crisis.
 
The first Fisher House Michigan will be built starting in 2019 on the campus of our VA, and will be like a Ronald McDonald House for military families. Currently the need for lodging is staggering, 200-300 families PER MONTH are requesting a place to stay while their family member is receiving care.
 
There are 76 Fisher House across the US- none in our state. Even Ohio has four Fisher House and currently building two more! These homes are 13.400 square feet and have sixteen family suites. They have shared living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry facilities.
 
The Fisher House Foundation builds these homes once sites are approved by the Department of Veterans Affair (Ann Arbor's  has been approved).
