Supporting the Ft Campbell Fisher House by painting and planting a “Seeds Of Hope” Garden for the family members to enjoy all summer long.  THANK YOU SO VERY, VERY MUCH!

Once again, we are rallying our wonderful volunteers to help support our Meals Team at the Landstuhl Fisher Houses! We currently have several empty slots on our meals calendar. Our goal is to provide at least 2 meals a week for our residents. Right now, we are providing on average one meal each week.

We’ve created a Pinterest Board to assist with meal ideas! Please check it out!

On June 6, 2016 the American Legion Family Department of Georgia purchased, donated and had delivered a much needed shed to the EAMC Fisher House – Fort Gordon, GA. Members from the American Legion Family Department of Georgia were present when the shed was delivered to the Fisher House. Attached are some pictures of the arrival and placement of the shed and the acceptance of the keys of the Shed from Mr. Mitch Russell with Bennett Building Systems to Ms. Miriam Stein (1st VP AL Department of GA and AL Post 178) and who was primarily instrumental in getting the shed for the Fisher House along with and Mr. Pat Garrett ( AL Post 178) Mr. Anthony Knapp, (AL Post 178), Mr. Donald J. Leger SR. (Commander AL Post 337 and with the Sons of the American Legion), Ms. Lisa Collins (AL Post 178). They in turn presented the keys to the shed to Mr. Francisco Cruz, Fort Gordon Fisher House Manager. Mr. Francisco Cruz (FH Manager) later presented a Certificate of Appreciation signed by the Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center Commander (COL Weber) to the American Legion Members present which they in turn will present to all their members at their annual state convention for the American Legion Georgia later in the month. The American Legion members present also had the opportunity to meet and speak to 2LT Angel Lopez and his wife and daughter (Fisher House Family). See attached pictures.

You never fully realize how much you miss something until you get to experience it again. In all my years of volunteer work…not one single place could ever come close to touching my heart like the Fort Bragg Fisher House. It feels so good to be back for a couple day❤️❤️

Live life with a servants heart, and life will live in you

Thank you so very much for helping to make the BAMC Fisher Houses “A home away from home”

We are so thankful for the support of our community! The Vogelweh After School Program held a donation drive to help stock our pantry! We say it all the time, but we could never provide the level of support our residents deserve without the support of our community!

We are very pleased to announce our Volunteer Coordinator, Mrs. Emily Mabe, has been named the Army Fisher House Volunteer of the Year as well as the Fisher House Foundation Volunteer of the year!
Emily began volunteering with us two years ago as a member of our Meals Team. In 2015, she took on the role of Volunteer Coordinator. This role requires between 30-40 volunteer hours each week.

Emily has served the Wounded Service Member community since 2005 both professionally and through volunteer work. Her relationship with Fisher House began in 2006 when she joined the Meals Team at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center Fisher House.

In her role as Wounded Service Coordinator for the Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP), she provided assistive technologies to over 3,000 Wounded Service Members, often times meeting the Service members at Fisher Houses all over the country to conduct their assistive technology needs assessments.

Emily went on to work at the Office of Warrior Care Policy, as a member of the Integrated Disability Evaluations System (IDES), leading the Veterans Tracking Application (VTA) Team. In this role she was responsible for monitoring thousands of cases to ensure they were adhering to policy and the service member’s case was meeting timeline goals.

When her family PCSed to Germany, she was a brand new first-time mom and decided to put her career on hold to focus on her family. However, when opportunities to volunteer with us arose she eagerly jumped in! When asked about her time with us she replied:

“My time volunteering at the Landstuhl Fisher House has been incredibly special! I feel so blessed to have the privilege of continuing to pursue my passion of serving military families. The Fisher House mission is one I’m so proud to be helping with. I have witnessed firsthand how providing a “home away from home” has helped these families through difficult times. Receiving this award was completely unexpected. However, I will treasure it always as I do my time at the Landstuhl Fisher House!”

Emily is married to Captain Douglas Mabe, who is a C-130 pilot in the Air Force. She and Doug are the proud parents of their 2 year old son Liam Findlay Mabe.

Congrats to Lorie Southerland and all of the wonderful people involved with the opening of the new and improved Fisher House Foundation home in Fort Bragg, N.C. So glad to be part of the mid-April supply drop of games and to get to tour with Operation Supply Drop. It is a beautiful facility that will be a welcome respite for families who wait, pray and hope at Womack Army Medical Center.
