Our spacious outdoor areas include "Heroes Park", an eight acre venue featuring a large covered pavilion, walking paths, memorial benches, playground, basketball court and beautifully landscaped grounds.

Flags representing all branches of military service are flown in front of the plaza.
Message from the Administrator
The Norfolk Veterans’ Home and its dedicated public servants take pride in providing topnotch, compassionate care to Nebraska’s veterans and their loved ones. Our team strives every day to create a safe, warm, home-like environment that allows members to thrive while helping fulfill the State of Nebraska’s mission to honor those who have served and sacrificed for our state and country.
In addition to the many wonderful amenities that support quality healthcare and other services, the facility and its grounds represent Northeast Nebraska’s commitment to veterans in other unique ways. Dedicated veterans’ organizations and other community groups are a regular part of the experience for members at NVH. Volunteers can be found in the building almost daily, supporting activities, meals, and other special events honoring those who call the facility home. Perhaps the most visible displays of the community’s support are “Heroes Park” and the “Memorial Flag Plaza.”
Heroes Park is an eight-acre outdoor activity area providing members and their loved ones with unique opportunities to enjoy time walking on paths surrounded by native grasses and memorial benches, holding events in the large pavilion, and even playing basketball. Memorial Flag Plaza graces the front of the facility and includes an honorary memorial wall with memory tiles that can be purchased to honor any veteran or current service member. These truly special areas are visible representations of the community’s deep gratitude and respect for those who have given so much.
The State of Nebraska’s commitment to its State Veterans’ Homes and their important missions breathes life into the well-known saying “There’s No Place Like Nebraska.” Words will never allow us to fully demonstrate our gratitude for the tremendous sacrifices veterans and their loved ones have made to allow us to live as we do, so at the Norfolk Veterans’ Home our mission is to make sure our actions make every day of the year Veterans Day!
Josh Stafursky, NVH Administrator
