I have visited this home many times over the past 20 years. Each time has been rewarding since they truly care about all of their residents even past ones. Once a family is at the National home, they are remembered for life and if they require assistance in their future, the National home will always reach out to assist.

I've been a financial supported of the VFW National Home for Children since 1975. A great place to assist youngsters & their families to grow up with many activities, education, their own fire dept., athletics etc. The staff continuously is working to always give families that TLC touch & work to make the Home a great place to grow up and live.

I have visited the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children. I was so amazed at the wonderful work they do for our Veterans and their families. So many soldiers are coming home from war facing problems in their lives such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Disorder, Financial Issues, Family Crisis and much more. The National Home for Children gives Veterans a safe haven to get their life back in order. They use a screening process and guidance that is needed to get the Family back into a stable environment. No one does more for Veterans than the Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Auxiliary. The National Home for Children is one example of the great work that is done for Veterans.

In this day and age, it's good to know there is still a place to go, people who care, and willing to help. All in one stop shop to get back on your feet; food, shelter, and training or counseling. It does the heart good to know the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children exist. Thank you for all you do for those who did all they could do for our country!

I have had an association with the VFW National Home for Children for at least 50 years. They have helped many veterans' families with a home, education and community life. Every dollar that I have sent has been well spent.

I am a proud supporter of the VFW National Home for Children because they have always stayed true to their Mission, and have adjusted their mission to meet current needs. Hundreds (thousands?) of children, and now, families have been kept from homelessness and desperation because the VFWNH has been able to provide emergency and long term assistance.
I will be a supporter of the Home for the rest of my life.

The VFW National Home for Children has been my favorite for years. How wonderful that our military families have such a wonderful place as a safe harbor when they desperately need assistance. Thank you again for the wonderful job you always do.
