I have been a member of the Ladies Auxiliary since 1994, and became very active in the many programs, my first visit to the National home was in 1994 on Ohio Day and every year after has been fantastic I remember going to the nursery the first time and fell in love with the place, the Ohio House is really nice and the great improvements at the National Home over the years have been great, the way the families and children are taken care of by all the staffshows they really care for all that live there, the programs they can get involved in like 4-H and scouts is great. I am always promoting National Home and telling every one that they need to visit to see the good that is being done for the Veterans children and the Veterans or the single families. I am a Life Member of the National Home and I send donations and other items to the National Home. "God Bless our Veterans and God Bless America." It is great to see all the organizations that can support the National Home without any goverment help.

get more people involved, most people have never heard of the National Home and are very surprised when you explain to them what goes on there and all the good that is done there for our Veterans and the Families of the Veterans.

As a life member of the Veteran's of Foreign Wars, Military Order of the Cootie, it is our obligation to support the VFW National Home for Children. I with my comrades go to the Home for Ohio Day, Cootie Christmas, and Easter Treat where we stay on campus at the guest house. We always have a great time there with the kids and the hospitality is wonderful.

I was able to travel to Michigan and tour the homes and meet some of those veterans and children They have done more good with the funds that they have received for their campus than any other organization that I am involved with. This is just like home. The housing is marvelous and the staffing is 100% effective in helping the veterans and their families. They utilize every penny that is contributed in each aspect of the campus. There is always more to be done and I would recommend this charity as a #1 on any contributors list of excellent charities to support.

Visiting the VFW National Home for Children was an awesome experience for both my husband and me. I found the staff to be friendly, knowledgeable, and place the children and their families as their #1 priority. They continually work hard to provide such a loving outlook on life. Thanks to Patrice Green, along with the entire staff, the families of our nation's heroes are able to overcome the hardships that come with being a soldier in time of war.

The VFW National Home is a wonderful "campus" of homes for single parent families, children without partents, famileis of a deployed servicemember. The family friendly environment encourcourages volunteering and continuing education. There is a museum to provide historical relevance for the 80 plus years it has provided homes not just way stations for youngsters. They also provide a free help line to link people to those who can help them.

As state chairman it was may honor to work with the staff of the VFW National Home for Children setting up Ohio Day. They made my job SO easy, I will be back again this year. Their number one priority is the children. They ensure their safety and well-being every day. The support from the local VFW to make our visit special is very much appreciated. The local policeforces enable us to have a caravan of well over 100 vehicles complete the trip safely. The families living at the home have made me feel welcome from my first visit in 1985 a great one. See you July 31!

Positive, loving environment for children of soldiers deployed or facing hardships. The education and experiences there will be remembered and used their entire lives. It is exceptional! Everyone should take the opportunity to visit or learn more about this facility.

I have been associated with the VFW National Home for Children since 1965 and continue to support it with monetary donations. I have visited the home on several occasions and am very impressed in the way it operates and with Patrice Green and the other employess guideance it is a wonderful place for the children and families of our veterans to reside. The children attend school and are not only educated throughout their time living there, but also are involved in many worth projects that teach them the tools they will need to succeed in life. May God continue to bless our veterans and their families for their service to our country.

I became a Life Member of the VFW National Home May of 1968 and have visited the Campus twice, both experiences were exciting and very informative. The work done for our veterans children is outstanding, educational and given with lots of love from all employees. I encourage all members and non members to visit the Home web site to learn what a wonderful life these families are given at our Home. In June of 2009 I was given the opportunity of representing the National Organization at the graduation ceremonies and was very impressed with senior class and their goals to further their education. They each spoke of their time spent at the Home and what it meant to them to remain living there as they attended college. I have supported our Home for Children for 42 years and will continue to do all I can to assist in any way I can. Betty Royston, Past Dept. President Dept. of Texas 90/91

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Having seen our graduates further their life by entering military and giving back to the men and women who made this home for children of deceased or disabled veterans available to them. Some have become teachers, doctors, lawyers and many other careers.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

At the present time I would like to see more about the home in the media, letting all know about the good work being done by our organization for the families of our veterans.

More feedback...

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

Their ability to find the most loving, caring and understanding staff to operate our Home. Patrice Green and her staff are doing a fantastic job.

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

Friendly, knowledgeable, loving and enjoy their jobs.

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

Continue to support and raise the children of our veterans who have made the supreme sacrifice for each of us and it is our responsibility to their families are taken care of.

Ways to make it better...

We were able to accomadate all the veterans children who have lost a parent and need a home

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

Funding for additional homes and education for the children.

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

I am extremely proud of the VFW National Home for Children and the care given by the dedicated staff led by Patrice Green.

Wow, what a wonderful, peaceful place for children and the their families to become whole again. The best thing that the Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliary could do for a Veteran. The staff will even reach out and care for families in need all across the Nation when called on to do so. Money spent here is well invested in children who need the care.

I have visited the National Home for Children and was so impressed with the dedicated staff. The children all seem to be happy, confident and well cared for. It is an honor to be a regular monthly donor. It is so easy to set up a monthly donation. No amount is too small. I encourage everyone to visit their website and if in Michigan to visit the National Home itself. It's one of the best things the Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliary do for our veterans and their families.

I visited the VFW National Home when I was Jr Vice President. It is the most beautiful, caring and serene place. It is a wonderful and safe home for the children and families of our veterans. I've been making an automatic monthly donation for 3 years. Can't think of a more worthy cause. I was fortunate this year to visit when Santa delivered gifts to all of the children. What a great experience! I would recommend this home for even my grandchildren if it were necessary.

As a combat service veteran and VFW Life Member, it is nice to know that in the event something tragic happens to me and my wife, there is a place where my child can go and be in a stable, caring and wholesome atmosphere like the VFW National Home for Children as opposed to becoming a ward of the state. This is a prime example of the expression "Veterans Helping Veterans".
