The 16 bedroom home away from home will be accompanied by a large living area, kitchen, and laundry facility. Each bedroom will accommodate 2-4 people, have a private bathroom and be eloquently decorated, similar to a hotel room.

The Arizona Fisher House fundraising committee has been charged with raising 3 million dollars by the end of 2014. The Fisher House Foundation will provide a matching contribution.
