Our homes are warm. Our fireplaces are flickering with fall logs and our Christmas trees are going up. Our home is safe and we are together, but not all families of veterans are doing quite as well. That is why the Department of North Carolina and the many posts throughout the state sponsor and support the VFW National Home for Children in Eaton Rapids, Michigan. We have our own cottage sponsored by the Department of North Carolina.
If you are looking for a worthy charity, please consider the VFW National Home for Children. You will be helping the children of veterans and maybe even a veteran and their family.
A veteran with child(ren), who is approved for VA Vocational Rehabilitation, may be eligible to live at the National Home and receive supportive services. When his or her unique situation prevents the veteran from taking advantage of VA Vocational Rehabilitation, the National Home can help make participation a reality.
Since its founding in 1925, the VFW National Home for Children 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 center, guest lodge, chapel and administrative offices. We have our own cottage sponsored by the Department of North Carolina. Learn more
Post contributions are made through the Department of North Carolina. Checks should be bear the notation “North Carolina Cottage” to ensure post donations go to the North Carolina Cottage. This ensures that the donation will go to maintenance of the North Carolina cottage and not the general home fund.
