Family Advocacy Program

Family Advocacy Program


Family Advocacy Program

The Family Advocacy Program, or FAP, provides clinical assessment, treatment and services for military members and their families involved in allegations of domestic abuse and child abuse.

The goals of victim safety and well-being and offender accountability form the basis of the clinical provider’s work in responding to allegations of domestic abuse and child abuse.

If you think you may be a victim of domestic abuse, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE or visit your installation Fleet and Family Support Center for information on available resources.

What is Domestic Abuse?  

Domestic abuse can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.

What is Child Abuse?

Child abuse is the physical or sexual abuse, emotional maltreatment or neglect of an unmarried person under 18 years old.

How We Can Help

The Family Advocacy Program provides a variety of interventions and treatment services to meet the needs of individual families. FAP provides counseling, clinical case management, treatment groups, and refers families to military and civilian resources as appropriate.

Reporting Options

There are two types of reporting options for adult victims of domestic abuse, restricted and unrestricted. Both options make available to victims the full range of advocacy, medical and counseling services.
