The Camp Lejeune Fisher House is a “home away from home” for active and retired families of patients who have been admitted for medical care at the Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune. The house is available to families who are coping with the medical crisis of a loved one and have no local accommodations.
The house is a comfortably furnished home with twelve (12) suites and can accommodate up to forty (40) family members. The home features a fully equipped common kitchen, laundry room, as well as common living and dining rooms.
The Camp Lejeune Fisher House broke ground in May of 2008 and opened in the Fall of 2010.
There are more than eighty-six (86) Fisher Houses located at major military treatment facilities and VA Medical Centers throughout the United States with more being built. The homes have been given as a gift by the Fisher House Foundation. The Secretaries of the respective Military Services and the Secretary of Veteran’s Affairs are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the homes once they are built.
