"I am truly thankful and words cannot express my gratitude for a peaceful, yet relaxing place. It is nice not to have more stress added to your plate on finding lodging, meals, or a place to do laundry. I praise the Fisher House for its generosity and kindness. If it wasn't for the Fisher House I wouldn't have been able to be with my husband while he was at the VA hospital for several months."
-Brenda Wilson, Guest at Rocky Mountain Fisher House

"It is really wonderful to know that the VA offers support to the family of veterans through programs / resources like the Fisher House. It is extremely helpful by reducing the financial burdens that medical treatment and hospital stays can create. Having one less thing to stress about provides some calm amidst the myriad of other emotions.
Before coming out to visit, I was extremely worried about my mother. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first got to the Fisher House, but it was not long before I realized that even though she wasn't home, she had a community of support there. I kept thinking about how different it would be if we were at a hotel - lonely, isolated, maybe harder to be positive or encouraged. At the Fisher House, people checked in on each other, asked how loved ones were doing, and talked about what they were going through. I really believe that the atmosphere, community, and support that she has at the Fisher House played a large role in helping her to stay positive, encouraged, and supportive. I think it also helps her to feel less the sense that many there understand what she is going through or empathize because they have a family member going through something similar. As the family member, I felt all of this too. I was really happy to be there and to connect with others in a way that would not have happened at a hotel.
I appreciate the opportunity to have stayed at the Fisher House while being there for my mom."
-Kisha Ratliff, Guest at Rocky Mountain Fisher House

"A home equals a place of refuge and safety. This is what the Fisher House represented to my daughter, grandson and myself during our recent stay in Denver while my husband was a patient in the VA hospital. We were so very blessed to be able to stay at the Fisher House - "our home away from home" - for nearly seven weeks. We will not forget the kindness extended to us during this time and the support of those in like positions. Thank you for allowing us this privilege. Blessings to all who make this possible for veterans and their families. --Carol, Guest at Rocky Mountain Fisher House

We want to thank Rocky Mountain Fisher House for your hospitality while we were in Denver for my husband's tests. Everyone was so kind & helpful to us. We can't thank you enough."
-Paul & Joan, Guests at Rocky Mountain Fisher House


The Rocky Mountain Regional VA Fisher House serves veteran and military families by providing a FREE "home-away-from-home" while their loved one is receiving medical treatment for illness, disease, or injury at the VA Hospital or approved facility. Many of our active duty service members and veterans have to be in the hospital for weeks or months and we make sure their families can be bedside and never have to worry about paying for lodging.

Background Statement

In 1990 Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher of New York began the Fisher House program. They dedicated more than $20 million to the construction of comfort homes for families of hospitalized military personnel. Upon completion the houses are gifted to either the Veterans Administration or the DOD. The Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher Houses are located on the grounds of various military and Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Centers around the country and overseas.

In 1993 the Denver Fisher House at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center was built. Since its founding, the House has provided free housing to thousands of military and veteran families. In the late 1990's, the Denver Fisher House became a VA home when Fitzsimons Army Base shut down. In 1995, the Rocky Mountain Fisher House Foundation was established to support the VA home. Support includes purchasing needed items, which the government struggles to buy. We also provide many services to the families staying at the home.

As the demand for our military families has grown the organization has developed to meet those needs. Our house serves a nine state region including: Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas, Nevada, Idaho, and North Dakota.

Construction of the new Rocky Mountain Regional VA Fisher House was completed in March 2020. At that time, the Denver Fisher House was shut down. The new Fisher House is located on the campus of the VA Hospital in Aurora, Colorado. The two story home can accommodate up to 32 families and has 16 suites, with private bedrooms and baths as well as an elevator. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. The foundation ensures there is never a lodging fee.

The Rocky Mountain Fisher House Foundation's mission is to fundraise and raise awareness about our military/veteran comfort home. The Foundation raised nearly one million dollars over the last four years to build our new home in 2020. Current donations help us to support the house including supplying services like cable tv, bottled water, snacks, meals and transportation. Over the next year, we want to upgraded the landscaping including adding a water feature in the backyard.
