VFW National Home for Children Helps Active-Duty Military Families

Eaton Rapids, MI, November 22, 2009 --(PR.com)-- In light of recent news about pressing family care needs of our nation’s active-military, these families should know there is help at the VFW National Home for Children. In addition to other programs, the National Home assists American servicemen and women by providing help and resources for their families.

Recently, a servicewoman made national headlines for having a deployment issue because she had no one to care for her infant child. The National Home has a program designed to provide help in situations such as this.

The National Home’s Military Family Program assists the children, or spouse with children of active-duty military, National Guard and Reserves during a period of deployment. If the “family plan” falls through, the National Home for Children can provide a temporary safe, secure and loving home for children or spouses with children on its village-like campus of homes during the deployment.

To learn more about the Military Family program or any of the other programs please visit http://www.vfwnationalhome.org/programs_and_services/index.shtml. For help please call the National Home Helpline at (800) 312-4200.

Located in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, and serving the entire country, the VFW National Home for Children has been a safety net for the families of our nation’s veterans and active duty military since 1925.
