All eight parcels of the designated project site (East 105th Street and Orville – a block north of The Louis Stokes VA Medical Center) were assembled under one title for transfer to the Veterans Administration. That transfer officially took place on June 30, 2017.
It is our intention to begin winding down the formal capital campaign early in 2018 and then transition from a capital campaign task force to The Friends of the Cleveland Fisher Houses committee. Funds donated going forward will be used to purchase deep-discounted airline tickets for Fisher House families traveling to and from Cleveland (done through the Fisher House Hero Miles program). Funds will also be used to obtain “entertainment values” for the families in the community such as museum passes, Goodtime cruise tickets, and tickets for family events being held at various venues in Northeast Ohio. Finally, funds will be used to assist Fisher House families with children who may have educational scholarship needs.
Again, to ALL who have supported us in this incredible journey… THANK YOU!!
