Long deployments, frequent moves, and mission readiness demands impose many stresses on military families, often leading to marital and parent child conflict. Concern for the welfare of Navy families and the effects of family violence on military performance prompted the establishment of FAP in 1976.
The five primary goals of FAP are:
- Prevention of family violence
- Victim safety and protection
- Offender accountability
- Rehabilitative education and counseling
- Command intervention
