The nonprofit Fisher House Foundation administers the “Hotels for Heroes” program in partnership with the Department of Defense in accordance with Public Law 108-375, Section 585, the FY 05 Defense Authorization Act. The program is comprised of individual hotel companies whose travelers donate their hotel points to assist service members and their families. Specifically, Fisher House Foundation provides free hotel rooms to wounded, injured, and ill military men and women who are undergoing treatment at a military or VA medical center and to attend authorized events. All requests for a free hotel room are verified by an authorized government official.
There are two categories of eligible recipients:
- Service men and women with military authorization may be given a free hotel room while receiving medical care if they are not eligible for government funded reimbursement.
- Qualifying service men and women may be given a free hotel room to enable their family or close friends to visit them while they are being treated at the medical center.
- To donate your hotel points, please contact your individual hotel points program.
