I am a PhD student with a specialization in Nonprofit Management. I have been aware of the VFW National Home for Children for over 20 years, and they are a top-notch organization. Their mission statement is very clear and is met all the times. They constantly provide the services as advertised, and the services they provide exceed the standards one would expect of such an organization. They should receive an "A-One" rating for all of their programs.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Do nothing, other than possibly expanding their reach, but that would require a large increase in funding. The expansion I would recommend is adding additional campuses so they can help many more veterans' and their families.
