A short run that will go a long way to help veteran and military families at the VFW National Home
The VFW National Home’s mission is to provide children and families of active-duty military, war veterans, and descendants of the VFW and its Auxiliary, opportunities for growth and development in a nurturing community, and by doing so, serves as a living memorial to all veterans. It was founded in 1925 as a place where the families left behind by war -- mothers and children, brothers and sisters -- could remain together, keeping the family circle intact even when their serviceman didn’t come home.
Today’s families face different challenges -- reintegration, post-traumatic stress, high unemployment, and rehabilitation from battlefield injuries, among others -- and the National Home has evolved over its decades-long history to meet those changing needs. Through the years since its founding, the VFW National Home has grown from an old frame farm house to a sprawling campus with playgrounds, park areas, and multiple buildings, including single-family homes, a community center and gymnasium, child care facility, guest lodge, chapel, and administrative offices covering 600 acres.
Over the years, the National Home has evolved to meet the changing needs of America’s military and veterans’ families. Through it all, one thing has remained constant: the National Home’s commitment to honor our nation’s veterans and active-duty military by providing help and hope for their children and families.
