Fleet and Family Support Centers
(FFSCs) offer clinical counseling services to service members and their families. Professional, licensed, clinical providers staff the program. The intent of clinical counseling services is problem-focused and brief, with the emphasis placed on problems in daily living, such as difficulty adjusting to the military lifestyle, relationships, parenting, grief and other personal crises that can have a negative impact upon military readiness and family preparedness. Services encompass a wide scope of educational, preventative and therapeutic services that promote an improved quality of life and increased resilience. Counseling is available to individuals, couples, families and groups, and provides an avenue for obtaining private, professional assistance in a non-medical environment.
Financial fitness professionals conduct money-saving workshops on subjects such as car buying, consumer awareness, budgeting, investment strategies, Thrift Savings Plan, predatory lending alternatives, home buying and much more. A solid financial future begins at the FFSC.
