Reviews for Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children

Rating: 5 stars  

What an incredible place! I was so glad to volunteer at a place that helps veterans and their families. The program makes sense and really seems to help families get 'back on their feet.' The staff were very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend donating your time and/or funds to help this worthwhile cause. -Julie S, USAF Veteran, Dubuque, Iowa

The houses and grounds are kept meticulous! There is a lot of history there. So many families have come thru there and were able to get assistance. The staff is all friendly and extremely helpful and welcoming. We stayed in the guesthouse, which is really more like a motel. Everything is clean and well maintained. We painted a room off the new museum and sorted and scanned photos. I really enjoyed getting to see the time capsule of memories. Tim and the staff were just as concerned that we were enjoying ourselves as we were to do a good job. I would do it again! I definitely would recommend them - they are deserving of your time and donations!

We are proud to support such a wonderful place that allows Families and Children of Veterans to assist them in their time of need. It is amazing such a place exists so the children can continue to be educated, enjoy a fun place, to be with others that share their experiences, and so much more. Thank you to the people that continue to make this a great place. Military Order of Cooties; Pup Tent White Mule #2
