Review for Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children , Eaton Rapids, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I grew up 'knowing' the VFW National Home but I was over 50 when I became 'aware' of just how much help they were to the children...when I chose to entrust my niece & nephew to the Home's care. I had guardianship for two years prior and realized that just my love was not enough. To help them grow, I needed to find a place that would safeguard them, where family could still be a part of their lives, where they could develop their potential, where they didn't feel they had to chose sides and could live without extra pressure; yet still be supported, nutured & loved. The VFW National Home has & continues to be all those things rolled into one. I loved them enough & trusted the Home enough to let them go...and we became even more connected as a family as when they were with me.

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

Seeing the smiles on children's faces and hearing genuine laughter

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

The finest kind.

Ways to make it better...

Nothing can be better than knowing your family is safe.

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

Being able to continue to provide the level of care without cutting staff or services or reducing the number served.

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

Thank God that the VFW & it's AUX continues this vital mission.
