Chicago, IL – May 30, 2023 – WIN Home Inspection, the #1 ranked and fastest-growing home inspection franchise in the U.S., announces a new partnership with Fisher House Foundation, providing on-going support through volunteerism and gift-in-kind services. The partnership was formed to mark WIN’s 30th anniversary as a leading home inspection business and to honor veterans during National Military Appreciation Month.
“Caring for those who have served our nation is a responsibility we all share, and WIN is honored to partner with Fisher House Foundation in providing safe and comfortable stays for our veterans’ families in proximity to their loved ones undergoing medical treatment,” said Praful Mittal, WIN Home Inspection CEO. “As we work together to inspect and maintain these houses, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by our brave service members and their families. We are deeply grateful for the service of our veterans, and we remain committed to supporting them in any way we can,” added Mittal.
Fisher Houses are donated to the Departments of Veterans Affairs or Defense upon completion and become part of the medical center they serve. Inspections are typically carried out by maintenance staff at the medical center. This gift-in-kind donation will alleviate the burden on those public servants and allow for the early identification and repair of any potential issues that might have developed over time.
WIN Home Inspection has a network of more than 260 locations in 45 states, making it one of the fastest-growing home inspection companies in the United States with more than one-third of its franchise owners being military veterans and first responders. The home inspection company’s 20 percent discount on the initial franchising fee for veterans and first responders has helped retired military members establish a new, successful career for themselves after service.
As helping veterans is at the forefront of WIN Home Inspection’s mission, they are excited to collaborate with Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that houses veterans and their families free of charge while their loved ones undergo medical treatment. The homes are located at medical and VA centers around the world with up to 21 suites each, a common kitchen, laundry facilities, dining room, and living room.
“For more than 30 years, Fisher House Foundation has been there for families as a loved one receives care at military and veteran medical centers,” said Fisher House Foundation CEO Ken Fisher. “We welcome WIN Home Inspection’s assistance in keeping these comfort homes comfortable, safe, and well-maintained as they serve a new generation of veterans.”
As part of a larger partnership, WIN Home Inspection will be active and engaged with Fisher House staff across the country to address their needs when it comes to maintaining the homes. Additionally, WIN Home Inspection’s Strategic Partners (franchise owners) across the country will volunteer to help with landscaping projects, provide warm meals to residents and more, as well as offer free Healthy Home Checks to ensure the health and safety of the homes.
WIN Home Inspection plans to continue to grow its support with Fisher House Foundation in the near future.
