Fisher House Foundation and United Health Foundation broke ground Tuesday, Nov. 18, on a new $2.65 million Fisher House at Camp Pendleton that will serve as a home away from home for military families, including families of wounded warriors, who can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment at nearby Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton.

The home, funded by United Health Foundation, will be an eight-suite, 8,000+ square-foot home that is expected to serve more than 280 families and provide nearly 3,000 nights of lodging annually, and save those families more than $250,000 a year in lodging expenses.
