Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children
March 25, 2010
I lived at the VFW National Home for Children with my four siblings from 1969-1977. This children's home was an excellent resource for our family. Our mother had deserted and our father was a disabled veteran. The campus is beautiful and the houses are spacious and I made many, many childhood friends. Some I still correspond with today. It was an excellent start for us in troubled times and we are lucky to have had this good start to launch us into adulthood. We are all fine citizens with jobs, some college under our belts and fine examples of what the right upbringing can do for a child. Plus, our strong belief in America, the flag and veterans overall remains in our lives today.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
living on the campus, experiencing the upbringing and education.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The great start in living on my own as an adult.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Caring, kind, loved children.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Maintain the beautiful cottages on campus to be around a lot longer to help families.
