I work for the VFW Department of South Carolina and we get several requests for assistance each week. The National Home is at the top of my list for referrals. They have a great staff and so many contacts across the country, I know our callers will get the assistance they need. I am also proud of the work they do with the family's residing at the National Home. I have visited them and was so impressed with all the programs and facility's they have. I can't say enough about all the do for our Veterans and families.
I am a member of VFW Post 2148 in Waco, Texas. On a recent trip to Ohio for a family reunion I looked to see how close we would be to the National Home hoping that we could view the campus. We were only 82 m iles away and we decided to go on a day trip to visit the home. I am so glad we did...I have heard about the home ever since I've been a member of the VFW and we have special prayer for them at every post meeting, but I had never talked to anyone who had visited the home. The visit exceeded my best expectations. I was thinking "institutional setting", but nothing could be farther from the truth. The site is in a beautiful area near Eaton Rapids and very well maintained. The staff we met were very personable and helpful to us as we toured the facility. We were so impressed that when we returned home we both became Life Members of the Home. If you have an opportunity go and visit. If not become a donor. If you watch testimonials of people who have been helped you will realize your donations would be supporting a very worthwhile cause.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children has provided a tremendous service to our Nation and its veterans for decades. When I visited last spring, I was truly amazed at the professionalism, care, education along with a variety of other services that the staff provides to military and veteran families that truly need it. In so many cases, they bring in families that have no options and no place to go. The outstanding staff at the National Home work with the families to get them back on track in an extremely safe and supportive environment. Words simply do not do justice to the impact this fine institution has on families.
After visiting this facility I came away thinking everyone needs to know of the wonderful facility that directly helps service men and women families. All citizens need to go for a tour and listen to the employees to experience first hand the works that National Home for Children does daily for those in dire need. Families have gotten back on their feet, they have met those who share similar life experiences and I would venture to guess they have made lifelong friends during their stay at National Home for Children.
I have visited the VFW National Home for Children on a couple of different occasions. The work they do is fantastic. It pays tribute to those that have served, are serving, and those that will serve in the future.
I'm a Vietnam War veteran, Army Nurse, and when I joined the VFW, in 2011, I learned about this wonderful charity. I'm a "Life Member" of the VFW's National Home for Children and follow their progress through mailings, e-mails, and word-of-mouth reports from other veterans, who have visited the "Home", in person. A few years ago, I even met a man, who had come to live at the VFW Home for Children, in 1926. He became a WWII veteran and has had a deep appreciation for the "Home", all his life. This is a very worthy cause and deserving of all the support they can get, from veterans as well as the general public. I urge all my friends to visit their website: www.vfwnationalhome.org.
It warms my heart to see organizations like this giving back to those that defend our freedom and fall on hard times and just need a break from it all to get back on their feet again.
Not until I joined the VFW did I know what the VFW National Home for Children was about. After which it was not a hard decision to become a Life Member of the National Home. I am looking forward taken a trip up to Eaton Rapids, MI. to visit.
There are many nonprofits but the Nat'l Home for Children really struck a chord with me for what they do. I am very honored to be a Life Member of the National Home for Children.
The VFW's National Home for Children over the years has been God-sent for so many Active duty military, VFW members and disabled Veterans in need for there children to have a safe and caring place to leave children until they can be re-united. It have been very fulfilling to raise funds in support for this children's home which is truly a national treasure.

Thank you for your support!
As the Department President of Illinois, we support two homes on the campus. The "National Home" is like nothing you have ever seen. It is not a clinical setting rather a home setting. It is a wonderful community for families of veterans and veterans with their families. National Home provides everything for the family. The home they live in, utilities, rehabilitation, schooling of the children, activities, and counselling if needed or warranted due to their veteran injury. They provide transportation for the Children who may need or want off campus activities. In essence the "world" is provided to these families, they provide hope, love, and a sense of belonging at a time which could be very traumatic and uncertain for the family. There is so much they are involved in! They have child care facilities for the parents, playground equipment, gymnasium, crafts, and an area designated for fun and even includes popcorn and ice cream!
Your support is appreciated very much, Samee. Thank you for your review!
This nonprofit organization has help many families who lost a family member. The National Home for Children saved 2 children in my home town who would of living on the street. I support them 110%.
Thank you for your review, Sandra.
I am a life member of the VFW National Home for Children. People have no idea some of the trails our military families have. A young single Mom gets deployed, but has no one to care for her child until she contacts the National Home. When someone comes home from the war zone and finds they lost their home and heir children are emotional lost, the national home will be there to help pick up their lives again and the soldier to get back into civil life.
There are unless stories that the VFW National Home for Children has helped. I donate throughout the year when ever I can.
Thank you for your support!
The VFW National Home for Children does an outstanding job taking care of our veterans and families. They provide a home for a military family that is going through rough times either caused by loss of a loved one, disability due to a deployment. They help the family get back on their feet.
Thank you for your review!
I am a member from Missouri and had the chance to visit and let me tell you what they do there for the families is right on. The Missouri house had a mother of two living in it and she was on her last year but was ready to take on the world after all of her training she received because of the home.
We are so glad that you had a chance to visit us and experience the National Home's impact. Thank you for your support!
The VFW National Home for Children provides a haven for military families that have suffered the most devastating loss imaginable. The staff there is so supportive and caring. They give the families a reason to carry on and the tools to help them.
I am a VFW Life Member since November 2011. I have read up on what the VFW National Home does and it is a great asset to families that need assistance and have become a life member of the National Home also. I think there is no better service to families that need a place to stay. I know the National Home relies strictly on donations and I make donation every year now.
Thank you so much for your support!
I have seen first hand all the great works of this non-profit. Many mothers and children came from very tough times and were able to get an education, learn positive life-skills, heal, and grow into positive and responsible adults and children.
Thank you for your review.
