A home away from home for veterans, active military, and their families.

Fisher House So Cal supports four Fisher Houses across Southern California, providing essential resources and assistance to military and veteran families while their loved ones receive care at nearby VA and military hospitals.

And if the Fisher House is not available at the time of need, we can help find suitable lodging accommodations nearby until a Fisher House room becomes available.

Why Are We Doing This?

We are passionate about, and committed to supporting our nation’s promise and obligation to support those who have sacrificed for our country’s freedom and our security.

We believe we owe more to our veterans, our active military, and to their families, who can’t afford the cost of lodging to be near their loved ones during their times of need – which can be for days, weeks, even months.

Sandy Lucas, Wilson High Graduate, Freed from Nazis

Dear Friend of Fisher House So Cal,

That was the headline on Tuesday, May 8, 1945, in the Long Beach Press Telegram, after my future husband Campbell Lucas, nicknamed “Sandy”, whom I would marry in 1960, was rescued from a Nazi prison camp in Germany. The day after Sandy graduated from high school, he volunteered for the Army and was assigned to the 99th Infantry, where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge.

Veteran’s Family Experience at Fisher House Long Beach

Lee Madden

Lee, in Australia, received a late-night call from a VA social worker in Long Beach, California who shared that her veteran brother Mark’s dementia was advanced and that she needed to come and help with Mark’s care and affairs. Soon.

She quickly arranged for an emergency leave from her job, packed, and bought a ticket for the first flight she could get.

Throughout her 23-hour flight, she wondered where she would stay. Where would she eat? Who would provide the legal, financial and respite care her brother needed? She worried about the enormous tasks ahead of her and the costs involved.
