Words from our Guests
"Unbelievably blessed to meet the staff who are awesome and very friendly and have the opportunity to stay here. Last night was the first night, I hadn't slept in 4 days but slept so peacefully here. Everyone offers to pray for you although they are dealing with something as well. Extremely grateful! Day One" March 22, 2018

"Praying for healing, peace and blessings to all those currently residing and future residents of the Fisher House. A special prayer goes up for the staff who are amazing. I can't thank everyone enough for their kindness. God Bless and thank you from the bottom of my heart!" April 11, 2018
