First Four Council's Campaign for Fisher House
Champions for Military Families

The First Four Council

The First Four Council is an organization made up of individuals with the rank corresponding to the first four enlisted pay grades of the United States Air Force; Basic Airman (E-1), Airman (E-2), Airman First Class (E-3), and Senior Airman (E-4). It is common knowledge that the Foundation of the Force is their junior enlisted personnel.

Airmen will embody the core values of the Air Force - Integrity First, Service before Self, and Excellence in all they do. The First Four Council membership is voluntary and based upon an Airman’s ability and willingness to advance the integrity of the elements that sustain morale, leadership, and most importantly, the mission.

The First Four Council at the forward deployed Joint Base Balad in Iraq are setting the example of “Service before Self” by taking time from their busy schedules to plan and conduct a 5K run in support of Fisher House Foundation.

The Fisher House™ Program

The Fisher House™ program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House™ Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.

There is at least one Fisher House™ at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House™ program serves more than 12,000 families, and have made available nearly 3 million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Fisher House Foundation uses donations to reimburse the individual Fisher Houses operated by the Army, Navy, and Air Force. No family pays to stay at any Fisher House!

Online donations are completely safe and the most efficient way of donating (saving time and money), but checks are accepted. Please download and print the 2009 1st Four Council’s Check Donation Form and mail the check and completed form to the address on the form.

Fisher House™ Foundation, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Donations are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
