The Nevada Veterans Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit corporation whose purpose is to improve the quality of life for members of the military, military retirees, veterans and their families in the State of Nevada.
When the Nevada Veterans Foundation (NVF) was established in 2011 its sole goal was to raise funds for the construction of the Las Vegas Fisher House. Since the Fisher House opened in February 2016 and was deeded to the Veterans Administration (VA) the goals of the NVF have expanded. The primary goal is to support needs of the Fisher House which cannot be met by the VA and to provide support and comfort to the veteran and military families during their stay at the house. In addition, the NVF helps provide support and assistance to the Las Vegas Veterans Treatment Court, the Southern Nevada State Veterans Home, the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery and veterans service organizations.
We invite you to learn more about the Las Vegas Fisher House, the Las Vegas Veterans Treatment Court, the Southern Nevada State Veterans Home, and the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery within this website.
CFC number 17707
There is no fee for families staying at the Fisher House. Families may call the Las Vegas Fisher House manager to make arrangements for accommodations.
