Kathie J spoke with Melanie Starkman, President/Executive Director for the Denver Fisher House on Sunday, November 3rd, 2013. Fisher House provides a "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury. Families do not pay to stay at a Fisher House. There are currently 61 Fisher Houses located on 23 military installations and 22 VA medical centers with more houses under construction or in design. Each house is designed to provide 8 to 21 suites. All are professionally furnished and decorated in the tone and style of the local region. The houses can accommodate 16 to 42 family members and feature a common kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining room and an inviting living room with library and toys for children.
