In all, the non-profit has helped more than 300,000 families since 1990 by donating 58 houses across the country and in Germany and the United Kingdom.

We believe in the power of family. We believe in, obviously, bringing the plight of the military family to light. This house is run by members of the Air Force — including house manager, technical sergeant Dorothy Whitfield. This house is their safe haven while they are here at Dover for their short stay, Whitfield said. The house has a fully stocked kitchen, multiple bedrooms, and a living room full of toys to make the family's hardest day somewhat easier.

Years after the Gross’ visit, the Fisher House is still making an impact on the family’s lives. Toni began volunteering. I just knew that I needed to give back and encourage others.
