  • Briefings and education/training sessions to locate family members with special needs, emphasize benefits and availability of resources and services and dispel myths about enrollment affecting military career.
  • Advocacy with individuals, military and civilian agencies to ensure family members are receiving services and accommodations.
  • Identify and coordinate soldier's EFM housing and community support needs.
  • Offers support groups.
  • Provides respite care through Child Development Services.
  • Offers recreational and cultural programs for family members with disabilities.
  • Provides directories and handbooks and other resources.
