MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Fisher House Wisconsin announced on Tuesday, March 26th the approval of the final building site on the Milwaukee VA Medical Center grounds.

The announcement was made in partnership with Steinhafels Furniture, which presented Fisher House Wisconsin with a $30,000 cash donation. The gift will be used to support the construction of Wisconsin’s first Fisher House on the Milwaukee VA campus.

There are 59 Fisher House facilities in operation across the United States and in Germany, built next to hospitals at major military bases and on VA grounds.  In 2012, the Fisher House facilities served over 19,000 families. The average length of stay for each family was 10 days. The Fisher House saved families more than $30 million in lodging costs as well as food and transportation.
