National Home Helpline
The National Home Helpline is the gateway to help for military and veterans’ families. Whether you need help connecting with supportive services and resources in your own community or you are seeking a referral to one of our on-campus programs, you can take comfort in knowing that your call will be answered by a caring professional who understands the unique challenges faced by today’s military and veterans’ families.
The VFW National Home for Children has more than 85 years of experience helping military and veterans’ families by providing counsel, support and connections with resources nationwide. The National Home Helpline is staffed by a dedicated team of caring, listening professionals who work directly with callers to help them find solutions to their pressing issues and concerns. Our resources go beyond community connections and traditional supportive services to include VFW Posts, Departments and Veterans Service Officers across the country.
The Helpline is answered Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
On the ground:
Sharon, a single mother of two, is extremely grateful for the Helpline services she has received. Struggling with a heart and lung disease, she soon found herself in a difficult financial situation and called the Helpline for our assistance. She was offered case management services to assist her in making and meeting short-term goals geared toward improving her present situation.
