Our purpose is to deliver on the Navy’s commitment to surviving families of deceased service members. The Navy Gold Star (NGS) program connects you with people who can help you cope with your loss. NGS uses an all-inclusive approach to delivering services through a combination of both available government and non-government programs and organizations, i.e., chaplain services, personal financial counseling, school liaison assistance, family employment, and clinical counseling.
NGS coordinators function as the long-term support personnel for survivors. They facilitate support groups, provide life skills education, and connect survivors with counseling resources. The coordinators work closely with existing organizations and programs to deliver the best possible service at the right time.
