"The VFW National Home assists military, veterans, and their families with children, by creating a foundation of services and resources to achieve their personal and family goals in order to move forward in a positive, safe and healthy environment.”


About the VFW National Home

Located at 3573 S. Waverly Rd., Eaton Rapids, MI  48827 on over 600 acres of land, the VFW National Home was born from the belief that America needs to care for the children and families of the men and women who sacrificed for our country.  The VFW National Home is a place of healing, support and refuge.

The VFW National Home was founded in 1925 by the Veterans of Foreign Wars 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 the need for rehabilitation from battlefield injuries, among others — and the National Home has evolved over our decades-long history to meet those changing needs.


Donations needed! The home is in need of cleaning supplies. Here is a list of needed items that can be donated on the Home's Michigan Day of Challenge in partnership with the VFW Department of Ohio.
