(KMOV) – The St. Louis area has two veterans’ hospitals, John Cochran and Jefferson Barracks. Now there is something new, the Fisher House, a place to provide comfort and aide to veterans’ families.
The Fisher House is located in Jefferson-Barracks, overlooking the Mississippi River. It opened in July as one of the largest Fisher Houses in the country.
The house is a 20 room suite house that has the feel of a luxury home or a fine hotel. It was built largely on donations with money raised from thousands of individual donations and fundraisers from softball games and even one girl’s bat mitzvah.
