VFW Veteran’s Village Information

Our Mission
We are dedicated to providing a homelike atmosphere to Veterans who have proven their loyalty and patriotism by serving our country in foreign lands during time of war. Our guiding principle is to provide affordable, independent living accommodations to our Veterans of Foreign Wars and their spouses, Men’s Auxiliary and Ladies Auxiliary and their spouses.
Who We Are, What We Are and What We Do
The VFW Home located in Fort McCoy, Florida is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit veterans organization and is owned outright and operated by the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Florida located in Ocala. It is the only facility of its kind anywhere in the world! We are not subsidized by any governmental, federal, state or local agencies. Cost of operations is met by rent income; an estimated revenue of 5% received in donations and another estimated 5% in fundraisers.

The doors to the VFW Home opened in October, 1991, is spread out over 42 acres, and rests among tranquil oaks and palms towering with age and dignity, just like our veterans residing there. The 34 rooms were rented and life at the VFW Home continued to grow. Due to a high demand for independent living accommodations for veterans, in March 2006 we opened a second addition of 19 rooms. The Home maintains a self-contained fresh water plant and waste system.
