Fisher House of the Emerald Coast

The Sandestin Wine Festival benefits the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and other worthwhile charities Sandestin Foundation for Kids. And many of Sandestin Wine Festival’s volunteers are here because they support the Fisher House!

The Fisher House of the Emerald Coast provides a home for military families when a family member is undergoing medical treatment at any local facility. It is available to any families with someone that has served in any branch of the military for any length of time. This includes active duty, reserve, Wounded Warriors and all veterans. There is never a cost to stay at the Fisher House. For this reason, we depend on the local community’s support to operate the House and fulfill any needs of the guests staying at the Fisher House. Below are a few words from our guests.

"Thank you for allowing my family to be together during my surgery. It was one less worry for me to have them here and know they are well taken care of."

"When my husband was injured during Ranger training, I drove hours to be by his side. Once there, I did not want to leave the hospital. The nurse convinced me to check out the Fisher House and allow myself some rest. I am so glad I did! It was such a warm and comfortable place, it allowed me to refresh and be better prepared to support him as he recovered."

No family pays to stay at any Fisher House.
