I have do doubt that "NSF", in the context described by you, stands
for "Nationalsozialistische Frauenschaft" (short: NS-Frauenschaft,
acronym: NSF), which means "National Socialist Women's Organisation".
The NSF was the official umbrella organisation for Nazi women's
organisations, together with the Deutsches Frauenwerk (German Women's
Movement, DFW) where former non-Nazi organisations had been pooled.
Reichsfrauenführerin (Reich Women's Leader) Gertrud Scholtz-Klink
(1902-1999) presided over both NSF and DFW, so they were effectively
one single organisation comprising all German women's organisations.
In addition, Gertrud Scholtz-Klink was also Leiterin des
Reichsfrauenbunds des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes (Leader of the Reich
Women's League of the German Red Cross) and of the Frauenamt der
Deutschen Arbeitsfront (Women's Bureau of the German Labour
Organisation, a universal Nazi substitute organisation for the
abolished trade unions), making the NSF effectively a widely ramified
organisation with access to a wide range of resources, such as canteen
and field kitchens, clothing, health care facilities and much more,
not to mention a huge pool of personnel and organisational structures
that spanned the entire country.
One of the main fields of activity of the NSF was charitable work.
During the war, this was expanded to providing support to those who
had lost their homes as a result of boming raids. Since the NSF's
leader was also presiding over other women's organisations, those too
were incorporated into the work.
When in late 1944 refugees from the eastern parts of Germany started
arriving, very often without any property and under chaotic
circumstances, the NSF was among the organisations providing support
to these persons and organising lodging and catering for them.
It should not be concealed that, apart from all charitable aspects,
the NSF was an organisation completely devoted to the views and aims
of the Nazi ideologists.

Thank you very much for your praise. I'm glad to know that you are
satisfied with my answer. I'd love to tell you more about me, but
unfortunately it is against Google Answers rules for researchers to
reveal their private backgrounds and identities. However, I can tell
you that I'm an author of fiction, writing mainly stories and novels
dealing with speculative history (or alternate history, as it is more
widely known). History is what fascinates me most, and it's always a
pleasant experience to share my knowledge here at Google Answers.
