I have been involved with the VFW National Home for Children since 2004 when I visited for the first time as a Jr. Vice for the Ladies Auxiliary. My joy is knowing that when I give a donation, it is going to help make a difference in a Veteran and their family's lives. The Home is run by professional staff, maintained beautifully and always ready with our help line to aid the Veteran and their family find help if possible in their area, but if not to start the process of getting them to the Home where there will not only be a home, but counselling, help with budgeting and many other ways to help the family heal and get back to a normal life - all at no cost to the Veteran or their family.
This facility is a one of a kind tribute to those Veterans who have defended our freedom and is our way of "paying it forward" to those who need our services.
I am a VFW Auxiliary member, Past National President for the Auxiliary and now a Trustee for the National Home and I recommend everyone to get to know what the VFW National Home for Children has to offer and to support the Home with any donations possible.
Great Dedication And A Great Help To Veterans And Families. Veterans And Families

Review from CharityNavigator
As a Board Member, I am helping raise money for National Home by starting a fund raising contest between the three States that I represent by offering trophies for the largest donation for the year of 2011. The contest is for Post and Auxiliaries in all three States. I have been the National home chairperson for 12 years. I feel that the work we do there is very important. I love the National Home and all the children and the Military Families who live there. The Home has always been very Special to me every since I made my first visit there. I have raised over $10,000 for the Home for different things. I help raise $1,300 every year for gift cards at Christmas through my Auxiliary. I do that as a Make A Difference Day Project. I hope to can contiue to do this and more over the next 5 years. Yvonne crawford District 4 Trustee
