Navy & Marine Corps Fisher Houses are available to active duty, retired military, veterans and their families, from all services. The family must be traveling a minimum of 40 miles one way with no local lodging accommodations available. The patient must be receiving medical treatment. ​

Due to priority and urgent medical needs, it is not always possible to admit families on a first come, first serve basis. The following factors are taken into consideration: ​ ​

  • Medical Condition: Terminal, Critical or Serious
  • Financial: Junior Personnel Have Priority
  • Status: Active Duty Personnel Have Priority

Once eligibility and availability are confirmed, the family will be contacted by the Fisher House staff when a room is available. Each family will be assigned one guest room and one parking space. A family may be admitted after business hours if prior arrangements have been made. Emergency or overnight walk-ins may be accommodated after contacting the specific location's Fisher House Manager.
