Born from the belief that America needs to care for the children and families of men and women who sacrificed for our country, the VFW National Home is a place of healing, support, and refuge. It was founded in 1925 as a place where the families left behind by war could remain together, keeping the family circle intact even when their servicemember didn’t come home.

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