Still in its planning phase, The Milwaukee Fisher House will be just over 13,000 square feet inside with 16 bedroom suites capable of accommodating up to 8 people per suite. Its warm and comfortable interior will be professionally decorated and beautifully furnished. Functionally, guests and their families will have access to well stocked kitchens and inviting living rooms, complete with a library and toys for children. Highly trained staff and caring volunteers are available to assist all Fisher House guests.
The proposed budget for the project is $6M, a portion of which will be funded by the Fisher House Foundation. Our goal as Fisher House Wisconsin was to raise the required funds before groundbreaking and we are proud to say we were the first Fisher House to accomplish that task. We broke ground on 3 June 2014 and have been continuing the mission to raise all of the funds to build the home. As of 1 Oct 2015 we moved from a Capital campaign to an Operating campaign to ensure we secure enough funds to run the home once its complete. All of the funds raised up to 1 Oct will be gifted to the Fisher House Foundation to help defray the cost of construction. The funds raised after 1 Oct 2015 will be used by Fisher House Wisconsin to take care of veteran families in their time of need.
