VFW Department of Illinois Service Office
The VFW National Home for Children serves as a living memorial to America’s veterans by helping our nation’s veteran and military families.
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.
The National Home’s services have also evolved to meet the changing needs of America’s military and veterans’ families. Through the Helpline and on-campus programs, the National Home is able to help families and children through times of crisis, both on the beautiful campus and in their own communities nationwide.
Please visit the National Home website to learn more about their programs and how you can support this unique living memorial.
