We are privileged to be able to serve dinner at the Fisher house every second and fourth Monday of every month, and love serving our community!
Here is an amazing story shared from the SLC Fisher House Manager Quinn Kiger, “My favorite story I like to share shows the power this home has and what we see every day. A veteran from Colorado was flown in to our VA hospital because he was VERY ill. His wife was coming with him and was told she was going to stay at a Fisher House. She had never been to SLC before and was scared to death. She had no idea what a Fisher House was. We welcomed her in and she became a part of the family. She met another woman staying here alone and they became each other’s support system. Well, one day I received a call from the social worker at the hospital letting me know that her husband had unexpectedly passed away. This woman, of course, was beside herself so the Social worker wanted to make sure I was here to support her when she came back to the home. Well that woman called the other lady staying here since she didn’t know who to call. The lady here went around and knocked on all 20 bedroom doors and asked every family member staying here to wait for her at the front door. So when she walked in, she had 20 families embrace her. It was a powerful sign to see.
I have had so many women come in my office sobbing stating “I have never heard my husband talk about his time in service until he is sitting around the dining room table here at Fisher House, talking to all the other men.”
