Every time you shop at Kroger you’ll help Friends of Lexington Fisher House complete construction of the Lexington Fisher House. The need is great due to skyrocketing construction material costs and supply chain challenges. Construction began in late January. The house is expected to be up and running by the end of the year. The 13,400 square foot house is being built just inside the main entrance of the hospital on Leestown Road. It will feature 16 privide suites with a common kitchen, dining and living room.
Once the $9 million home is built, it will be gifted to the VA for free and it will then be owned and operated by the VA.
A Fisher House is only built on VA property or military bases. The Lexington Fisher House will be the first on VA property in Kentucky. The only other Fisher House in the state currently is at Fort Campbell. There are more than 90 Fisher House’s in the United States, Germany and Great Britain.
The Lexington Fisher House will serve generations of Veterans and their families by providing a home away from home at no cost to veterans’ families when their loved one is hospitalized at either VA hospital in Lexington.
