Who We Are

The VFW National Home for Children was founded in 1925 in Eaton Rapids, Michigan as a place where families left behind by war could remain together, keeping the family circle intact even when their serviceman didn't come home. 

 

Today's military and veteran families face different challenges -- reintegration, post-traumatic stress, high unemployment and rehabilitation from battlefield injuries, among others -- and the National Home has evolved over our decades-long history to meet those changing needs.

 

In addition, we understand that the impacts of war can be generational.  The National Home is here to help veteran connected families as well who are directly related to a VFW or Auxiliary member or are eligible to become one. 

 

Resident families can accomplish significant life goals by participating in our program.  We offer case management services to help families establish their plans for the future and set goals, education, recreational, and enrichment opportunities for parents and their children, as well as free housing and daycare.  Community resources and counseling provided as needed. 

Featured Resident Story

Here is the story of Brian, who grew up at the National Home and was inspired by the honor and faithfulness of those who make the Home possible to serve his country in Iraq.
