Rendering of Bronx Fisher Houses Rendering of Bronx Fisher Houses

NEW YORK CITY—As Memorial Day reminds the country of the service and sacrifices of men and women in the military, the Fisher House Foundation demonstrates how real estate can give back to those in the armed services and their families. The foundation built two homes at 130 Westbridge Road in the Bronx, New York. The facilities will provide free lodging for 32 families of military members and veterans allowing them to be close to those hospitalized at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center.

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be part of this. I was born and raised in the Bronx, so it’s like coming home” says Ken Fisher, chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation. “I want our veterans and their families to know when they walk in the door of a Fisher House that America cares and we thank them for their service and honor that service in a tangible way.”
