When we were deciding how to donate funds from our annual charity fundraiser, the National Home for Children Staff and the good people at the VFW National Headquarters made the choice an easy one for us. You can be proud of the work done for the children and families of veterans with your dollars. The National Home newsletter says it all.

One of the greatest programs for veterans and their families in the nation. However, more publicity is needed. Not enough citizens, and even veterans are aware of the program.

This venerable institution provides security and safety for the children of America's heroes, both temporary while a parent recovers from the turmoils of war, or until the children are grown and able to function in the real world. The National Home is a good neighbor in Eaton County, it assures that the children have the support they need to survive in local schools, and prepares them for post-high school education. I am only a small-change donor, but I believe the National Home plays an important role for members of the Armed Services, for veterans and their families.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It operates with no secrets about its finances, its goals and its programs, while protecting the confidentiality of its clients.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve more families in more locales: many veterans families need short-term help and something closer to their homes would be helpful

It was October 1996, when the Proud Veterans Motorcycle Club came into existence. Shortly thereafter we came to a decision as to which organization we would contribute to, and this is THE ONE. We do an annual benefit to raise money to donate to The Home every year, and we normally present the check in October at their annual meeting in Eaton Rapids. A lot of our members also donate clothing and other items to The Home throughout the year. Whenever we stop by to visit The Home, either individually or as a group, we always get the red-carpet treatment. It is a great feeling to know that our organization can make a difference to this organization and the kids. We are very thankful that The VFW National Home for Children exists and is not far from us.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

everything from seeing the kids, to attending benefit concerts, and visiting the replica of the VietNam Wall that was on display at The Home in Eaton Rapids, MI.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always very professional, courtious, and helpful, as they go above and beyond the call of their duties.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its' capacity to help more children on a regular basis, for years and years to come.

Ways to make it better...

I had more money to donate.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

keeping the everyday activities going, with the economy the way that it is.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it has been an honor to be a part of an organization that has been able to help support The VFW National Home for quite some time.

This is an outstanding charity doing good for our Armed Forces families. Some of the children are orphans while others need a home while a parent is deployed. This Children's home understands that kids are not grown at 18 and has services to successfully transition teens to college or to an independent adult life without throwing them on the street like foster care. Children have opportunities not just a bed and meals. Please take the time to learn about the VFW Home for Children, thank you.
