For so many of the children and families at the VFW National Home for Children, your support has been the answer to their prayers. You’ve not only helped struggling families overcome great challenges and recover from the wounds of war, but you’ve also helped our 80-acre campus remain a living memorial to America’s veterans.

Thank you!

"Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over". With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! 

If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.

VFW Salutes United States Army for 241 Years of Service
Our nation’s soldiers are America’s true heroes.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – June 14, 2016, marks the 241st year of service from the United States Army. The U.S. Army has evolved drastically since it was originally organized as the Continental Army in 1775; battlefields have transformed, weaponry has evolved, faces have come and gone, military uniforms have varied, but one thing holds fast: the bravery and the heart of the individuals who wear the uniform, and their commitment to their mission.
