NOTICE: All Fleet and Family Support Center classes have been canceled until further notice as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Please call your local FFSC for more details.

The Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) is located in Bldg 1260 near the Navy Federal Credit Union and Navy Exchange complex. It is a full-service FFSC. 

We provide the right services at the right time to strengthen personal and family abilities that will meet the unique challenges of a military lifestyle.

The Fleet and Family Support Center offers a wide variety of programs and services for active duty, military family members, retired military personnel and DoD civilians under the following functions: Deployment Support / Readiness; Crisis Response, Counseling and Advocacy; and Career Support and Retention. Programs under these three functions are:

DEPLOYMENT/READINESS: Services for military, DoD civilians and family members. Programs include Command Consultation and Support, Information and Referral, Deployment Support, Ombudsman Support, Relocation Support, Exceptional Family Member Support, and Life Skills Education and Prevention programs designed to address new military spouse orientation, stress management, anger management and suicide prevention.

CRISIS RESPONSE, COUNSELING, AND ADVOCACY: FFSC clinical counselors are licensed and credentialed professionals who provide counseling, victim intervention and prevention education related to military quality of life issues. Services include solution-focused clinical counseling for individuals and couples; Family Advocacy Programs (FAP) addressing domestic violence, child maltreatment, and treatment and education; and Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) prevention and education programs related to sexual assault.

CAREER SUPPORT AND RETENTION: Programs include the Transition Assistance Management Program (TAMP) for service members and their families transitioning out of the military; Family Employment Readiness education programs to assist family members with their job search; and Personal Financial Management education programs that promote financial stability. One-on-one counseling is also available.

The FFSC has a Retired Activities Office staffed by retired military volunteers who provide services and resources for retired military personnel, their families, and survivors to ensure they receive up-to-date information on retiree issues, like Veteran’s Benefits, Survivor Benefits, and other benefits to which they are entitled.
