Kansas City, MO - Family members of veterans will soon have a place to stay free of charge while their loved ones are receiving care at the VA Medical Center. 

The nonprofit Fisher House Foundation broke ground this summer on a new Fisher House.  This will be the second one in Missouri. 

The $7.5 million facility in Kansas City is designed to be a 'home away from home' and will have 16 suites for family members to stay, and includes common spaces and two large kitchens.
