VFW National Home for Children

Support the VFW National Home for Children.

The VFW National Home for Children was set up to help military families who are struggling, providing a place where they can actively build a better life.

It began, in 1925, with a simple farmhouse where widows and their children could live and keep their family together.

Now, it’s an entire community with homes, parks, offices, a community building and a chapel.

The aim of the National Home is to provide what each family needs to get back on their feet; support through crisis, guidance, housing, education, childcare and community.

Each family sets goals, is supported in reaching them and expected to show progress.

This incredible place is a true lifeline to many families, such as the Hoskins family from Ohio. Shawn Hoskins, a veteran of the Iraq war, suffered from post-traumatic stress. His family came to live at the National Home to get support during his recovery.

His wife Melinda comments;

“Words can’t describe my gratitude to the National Home, they gave us hopefulness and peace at a time when we were still at war in our own home” .

As the famous saying goes;

“Greater love hath no man who is willing to lay down his life for another”. It’s families such as these that need your help.

Veterans and their families need your help.

In just a couple of minutes, supporters like you can positively impact the lives of military families across America.

All it takes is a few taps on your cell phone.
